Alvaro Morata eyeing Juventus return?

Morata on his way back to Juventus?

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata could reportedly be pushing for a Juventus return after he was spotted meeting Bianconeri sporting director Fabio Paratici in Milan.

Morata, 25, struggled to perform for the Blues during the backend of the previous campaign and he was eventually dropped to the bench in place of Olivier Giroud for the final months.

With the season having come to a close, there has been plenty of speculation over Morata's future and Marca have now published a picture of him catching up with Paratici and agent Juanma Lopez.

The Serie A holders are yet to make any sort of approach for the Spain international but according to Marca, the Blues could negotiate a swap deal with one of Gonzalo Higuain or Mario Mandzukic arriving at Stamford Bridge.

Morata netted 12 Premier League goals during his debut season with Chelsea but just one of those came after the turn of the year. His average form has seen him miss out on Spain's squad for the summer World Cup.
