Is he off!?? Exit seems ever closer as Chelsea player left out off squad to face Arsenal

Chelsea fans should brace themselves for the departure of another high-profile departure as their record signing was left out of the all-important derby.

Things have gone from bad to worse for Alvaro Morata at Stamford Bridge. After having a wretched second half of last season, Morata has expected to be handed a new lease of life under new manager Maurizio Sarri. He had an opportunity to start with a clean slate but such was his mental state that he was not able to make the most of the opportunity, much to the chagrin of Chelsea fans.

Morata started the season as Chelsea’s first choice No.9. His uninspiring performances over the course of the season have prompted Sarri to change his plans. The Italian has historically been stubborn when it comes to his tactics. Now that Morata has fallen out of favour – the third choice behind Hazard and Giroud – it’s tough to see a way back for him. Such was underlined when he was left out of the squad entirely for the big game against Arsenal.

The Blues could have effectively put Arsenal top 4 hopes to rest with a win but Morata’s contributions weren’t deemed worthy enough by Sarri.

As the transfer season rumbles on, Gonzalo Higuain seems to be inching closer to a move to Chelsea by the day. Consequently, Morata’s move to Atletico Madrid is also in the pipeline. Several sources reported over the past week that personal terms have been agreed. A move is expected to go over the line before the transfer window ends. Will it be a new beginning for the Spaniard, he certainly hopes so but the jury remains out at the moment. His credibility at Chelsea, however, is certainly beyond any possibility of rehabilitation.
