Alvaro Morata (Real Madrid to Chelsea)
The former Real Madrid striker joined Chelsea in the summer of 2017. Chelsea paid a reported club-record fee of around £60 million and hoped that he would help improve their attack. Morata scored 15 goals in all competitions in his first season with the club. This was nowhere near what was expected of him.
It was not that he wasn’t creating goal scoring opportunities but the fact that he was missing sitters that got on the nerves of the fans. By the time he was done with Chelsea he ended up with 24 goals in 72 appearances.
Chelsea were in fact so eager to let him go that he was sold to Atletico Madrid this summer despite suffering a transfer embargo. Chelsea would rather be a player short than have him in their payroll. The fact that the fans also celebrated the move away is an indication of the torrid time Morata had in the London club.
