"What's interesting of course is that has caused a domino effect as we've been saying all along this month, that is of course Morata expects to go to Atletico Madrid", Balague told The Guillem Balague Transfer Show.

He will spend the next six months trying to prove he is worth the £32m option Chelsea have to buy him from Juventus at the end of the season.

Morata - without a Premier League goal since November 4 - has fallen out of favour under Maurizio Sarri.

Atletico are hopeful that Morata will be able to make his debut against Real Betis next Sunday.

"But it's interesting the take from the Spanish media last night, which was that Chelsea is now not so sure about selling Morata and is actually blocking the move".

Former Real Madrid team-mate Dani Carvajal wished him well, despite the fact he was joining their city rivals.

Met office issues ice warning for north
Snow warnings have been issued for the coming days, with a risk of heavy flurries across the region. Air coming from the North Pole is set to bring the most low-level snow of winter so far.

"I'm very happy, I've spent days waiting for this", Morata added, also addressing his spell with Real, where he won one La Liga and two Champions League titles.

Atletico's 2-0 win over Getafe helps solidify their second place position in La Liga and helps Diego Simeone's side keep pace with leaders Barcelona.

And the 26-year-old insists his Los Blancos connection won't affect his relationship with Atleti supporters.

Fans are now concerned the arrival of Morata will further push the teenager down the pecking order and stunt his development as well as his progress into the starting XI.

From the physical and technical point of view, he is a very good player and suitable for my football. His last start was against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on 5 January.

Sarri's reputation rose to prominence after ingeniously converting Dries Mertens from winger to false 9 during his time at Napoli, but that same philosophy hasn't paid dividends with Hazard, who has looked wasted through the middle.
