- Alvaro Morata and his agent were spotted in a cafe in Madrid, Spain
- This brings to question about his intending move to Barcelona or Atletico
- The 25-year-old has struggled to hit top form under Maurizio Sarri
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has been spotted in Spain with his agent ahead of a January move to either Barcelona or Atletico Madrid.
The misfiring Blues forward is reportedly making his way out of the north London club to create room for incoming AC Milan loanee Gonzalo Higuain.
The Spain international has failed to live up to the billing during his first season under ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
And he is yet to discover his scoring form under Maurizio Sarri and a return to La Liga is looking more likely for the 25-year-old.
But with the picture showing Morata and his agent talking in a cafe in Madrid, will get Chelsea fans intrigued.
The former Real Madrid star was not listed in Chelsea's 2-1 victory over Newcastle in a Premier League game at Stamford Bridge.

Morata's wife Alice Campello also hinted at her husband's exit when she posted a picture of him on her Instagram story showing Morata in a car, with another snap taken of a motorway sign for Gatwick airport.
Wanda Metropolitano outfit Atletico Madrid have been linked to Morata after Diego Costa underwent foot surgery in December, ruling him out for a couple of months.
Barca also need a back-up striker after Munir who joined 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.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has heaped praise on out of favour Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.
The Spanish tactician also reveal plans to sign another center-forward following the departure of Munir El Haddadi to Sevilla in the January window.
