Morata failed to impress during his first season under Antonio Conte.

And he is yet to find any kind of consistent form with Maurizio Sarri either, with a return to his homeland looking more and more likely.

But Chelsea fans are sure to be intrigued by a picture apparently showing Morata talking with his agent in a café in Madrid.

The striker was not in the squad for Saturday’s 2-1 Premier League win over Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.

And Morata’s wife Alice Campello fuelled talk of an exit by posting a picture on Instagram story showing Morata in a car, with another snap taken of a motorway sign for Gatwick airport.

Atletico Madrid are believed to be interested after Diego Costa underwent foot surgery in December, ruling him out for a number of months.

While Barca need a back-up striker after selling Munir to Sevilla, with boss Ernesto Valverde saying: “He [Morata] is a great player, [but] he’s at another team and we respect that a lot.

“We have to look at it, it’s clear after Munir’s departure we have a space. We’ll see if we can sign a player. We will see if we can, if someone comes.”
