Newspaper AS said Morata, 26, was travelling to the Spanish capital on Saturday to finalise an 18-month loan deal with Diego Simeone’s side, who are second in LaLiga, with a medical due on Sunday.

Morata passed through Atletico’s youth academy before switching to neighbours Real Madrid, where he spent two separate spells as a professional, and had two seasons with Juventus before joining Chelsea in 2017 for a reported 80 million euros ($91.30 million).

Despite a promising start to his career in the Premier League, with 10 goals in his first five months, Morata has had a disappointing last 12 months with the London club, starting fewer than half their league games under coach Maurizio Sarri.
