Chelsea announced on Saturday that Alvaro Morata will make his loan move to Atletico Madrid permanent, having agreed terms with the Spanish club for his transfer.
The Spaniard joined the La Liga side on an 18 month loan deal in January but will now not make a return to Stamford Bridge.
Could Frank Lampard’s inexperience cost Chelsea next season. One Derby fan explains why it will in the video below…
Olivier Giroud was signed in 2018 to compete for the position and last season Eden Hazard emerged as the primary pick through the middle of Chelsea’s attack.
Given he cost the club a reported £60m, he didn’t live up to his potential as a long-term mainstay in the first-team.
His move to Atletico resulted in six league goals in 15 appearances and clearly they think he is worth investing in ahead of the new campaign.
Chelsea fans though are keen to see the back of him, with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on the announcement…
Never have I been more happy to see a player leave, his mentality is weak. Cant handle the pressure and even a strong gust of wind would be enough for him to go down…
We dont want players like that at this football club.

Good move. Clearly didn’t want to be here and as Lampard said we should only have players that want to play for Chelsea
