There was certainly a lot of excitement amongst Chelsea supporters when the club managed to secure the signature of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid last summer.
Manchester United were strongly linked with the Spain international, but the Red Devils ultimately signed Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, which saw Morata move to Stamford Bridge.
The 25-year-old showed plenty of positives signs in the early stages of the 2017-18 campaign, but it has been a difficult few months for the centre-forward.
Morata has only scored one Premier League goal in 2018, and struggled to make his mark in Wednesday’s Premier League clash with Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea’s hopes of finishing in the top four in the Premier League took a huge hit as they struggled to a 1-1 draw with the Terriers in London.
Morata, who is said to be on £155,000 a week at Chelsea, was picked to lead the line ahead of in-form Olivier Giroud, but the Spaniard found it difficult to make an impact, and the Chelsea fans, who have become increasingly frustrated with the striker, have expressed their anger.
