The player completed a two-year loan move to the Bavarians 18 months ago but has failed to live up to expectations and the Bundesliga side are unwilling to pay the remaining transfer fee (£3m) to Madrid.

Chelsea are set to immediately replace Morata by signing Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain on loan.

A potential striker merry-go-around could also see Michy Batshuayi, whose loan agreement with Valencia was terminated last week, join AC Milan this month.

However, the Spaniard knows the league well and had a few decent years with Real Madrid before his move to Juventus and then to Chelsea. This striker could potentially make up for recent loss of firepower in the near future.

Duke Tops Florida State With Last-Second Cam Reddish Buzzer-Beater
Savoy made a pair of free throws with 15.8 seconds left, just seconds after forcing a turnover, to put Florida State ahead 78-76. Duke was without Cam Reddish who sat out due to illness and Tre Jones left the game early in the first half with an injury.


Álvaro Morata is close to a return to the Spanish capital Madrid but will not sign for his boyhood club Real Madrid.

However, with Gennaro Gattuso's comments over the last few days and reports from various sources, it's evident Higuain is pushing for a reunion with his former Napoli Coach Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.

"It's right that we don't talk about it now out of respect for the player and for AC Milan, but we can talk about it from tomorrow", Nedved told RAI.

However, he has fallen back on his words after the weekend.

"I'm not sure on him", Merson admitted to Sky Sports.

"Higuain wasn't in the picture because I was afraid the virus would spread among the other players, so that was my decision", Gattuso added, justifying Higuain's absence. Chelsea's preference is said to be a permanent deal and they would apparently be looking for £45m.

Higuain would be a great addition to Sarri's squad and his role could possibly help the team qualify to the UCL next year.
