Juventus have offered Alvaro Morata an escape from his Chelsea hell, tabling a three-year loan deal with obligation to buy.
The Spaniard, 25, spent two seasons in Turin, where he enjoyed arguably the best period of his career in between spells with Real Madrid.
Last summer, he left the Bernabeu to sign for Chelsea in a club-record £65mdeal.
However, after a positive start, the goals have dried up and he has struggled to settle in London.
Juventus are keen to bring him back and are ready to make him their second most expensive player ever, according to The Sun.
It would mean Morata will have had two spells at two clubs – Juventus and Real Madrid – at the age of just 25.
The Serie A giants want to sign him on an initial three-year loan deal with an obligation to buy for a total cost of £52.8m.
The structure would be similar to that which saw Juan Cuadrado finally join from Chelsea this summer, having been on loan since 2015.
After the first 12 months, Juventus would pay £8.8m, then a further £17.6m after the second year — a final payment of £26.4m after year three, with that fee officially making him a Bianconeri player.
Chelsea are not overly thrilled with the structure of the deal, but accept it is their best chance to recoup such a big fee.
Morata has never hidden his love for the Bianconeri. His wife Alice Campello is from Turin and both would jump at the chance to return.
The Spaniard became a fan favourite during his time there and remains in contact with several Juventus players, including Paulo Dybala.
