Morata’s form in Spain could as well rule out possible return to England at the expiration if his loan deal. The Spaniard couldn’t hit the ground running after his move from Real Madrid to Chelsea.
Morata has turned himself to become Atletico Madrid’s regular starters and a top choice for Argentine coach Diego Someone.
Morata’s goal helped Atletico Madrid cruise past Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup semifinal to book a final bout with Real Madrid who defeated Valencia to get to the final.
Alvaro Morata is expected to start when Atletico Madrid take on Real Madrid on Sunday, January 12 in the final of the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia.
