Former Juventus striker Alvaro Morata has not even played a minute for Real Madrid since returning to the team earlier this summer, but now could be set to leave the team 

According to the Metro, Chelsea are prepared to break their club record for a transfer signing with an over £50 million ($66.33 million) bid for Alvaro Morata.

This past season Morata scored seven goals in 34 Serie A appearances, and 12 goals in 47 overall appearances. The year before he scored five goals in 12 Champions League appearances, earning Team of the Tournament honours after helping Juventus reach the Champions League Final.

Prior to his 2014 move to Juventus, Morata featured frequently for Real Madrid and Real Madrid Castilla. In 37 La Liga appearances, Morata scored 10 goals.

On the international level, Morata has been capped 13 times and scored six goals – three of which have come at Euro 2016.

The current Chelsea transfer record is $64 million paid to Liverpool in 2011 for Fernando Torres - a flop of a move that lasted just a few disappointing years and preceded a permanent move to Atletico Madrid in 2015 for considerably less money.

Chelsea's interest in Morata is so strong that there have even been rumors that the team would even give Eden Hazard to Real Madrid in exchange for a package of players and cash that would include the Spanish striker.
