So, Alvaro Morata has left Chelsea - 18 months after signing for £60 million.

The Spanish striker initially made a promising start to his career at Stamford Bridge but he will leave the club with a record of 24 goals in 72 appearances.

On Monday afternoon, Atletico Madrid confirmed they have signed Morata on an 18-month loan, with the option to sign him at any point during the deal for £48.5 million.

In truth, Chelsea fans will be glad to see the back of a player that was clearly struggling for confidence at the west London club.

While nine goals in 24 appearances in all competitions this season isn’t too disastrous, Morata has suffered in front of goal.

And immediately after his move was announced, a video emerged showing just how wretched his form has been.

The six-minute 27-second video claims to show all of Morata’s misses for Chelsea and Spain this season - and there’s plenty of them.

Time and time again, Morata misses simple chances which he really should be scoring.

And after each miss, you can just see his confidence slowly ebbing away.

You’ve almost got to feel sorry for him.

Whether or not Morata can kickstart his career back in his native country remains to be seen but he seems excited for the new chapter in his career.

"I'm very happy and proud to be here,” Morata said.

“I can't wait to start training, meet my new teammates and play.”

But the move had been coming for a while and Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admitted that Morata had decided to leave last month.

"I think that Morata has the characteristics for playing in my team,” he said.

"But one month ago, he said he wanted to play in another team.

“So it was really very difficult for him to give us the 100 per cent for his mental situation, I think.

"Morata is potentially a very important player. From the physical and technical point of view, he is a very good player and suitable for my football.

“But the situation changed in the last month. So we needed to change."
