According to The Telegraph, Chelsea have threatened to recall Alvaro Morata from his loan spell at Atletico Madrid if the Spanish club do not make the move permanent this summer.
Morata joined Atletico on an 18-month loan in January, but Chelsea have the option to recall the striker this summer.
With Chelsea unable to sign players this summer due to the transfer ban, the Blues are ready to recall Morata unless Atletico pay £50 million to keep Morata.
Chelsea’s threat to recall Morata will be a huge concern to the striker as he has made it clear that he wants to stay at Atletico, where he scored six goals during the second half of the season.
Returning to Chelsea will be difficult for Morata after the striker blamed his Chelsea teammates for his struggles at Stamford Bridge.
With the Blues unable to sign a striker this summer, incoming Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will have to work with Olivier Giroud, Michy Batshuayi, who scored nine goals across two loans at Valencia and Crystal Palace, and Tammy Abraham, who netted 26 times in the Championship for Aston Villa.
Morata arrived at Chelsea for a then club record £57 million in July 2017 and he still has three years remaining on a five-year contract.
