Atletico Madrid and Sevilla have also expressed an interest in signing the Spain global as Morata looks to end his torrid time in England.

Former Real Madrid frontman Morata has been linked with a return to LaLiga, though Sevilla said a deal for the Spain global would be "very, very complicated".

On one side you have a striker who did perform for Chelsea, but his issues off the field left his position at the club untenable, while on the other there's Morata, who has been a real disappointment considering the money we paid for him.

While Chelsea are looking to offload Morata, who has scored five Premier League goals this season, they are desperate to bring in a replacement.

Simeone sees him as someone who can improve his team's attack, with former Chelsea man Diego Costa now struggling with injury problems.

Speaking of Wednesday's match, Simeone says he felt Girona made life hard on his side and that the tie was still there for the taking for either club.

Since Robert Mueller made this a sticking point in seeking to overturn Manafort's plea deal, the answer thus far seems to be no. Kilimnik worked with Manafort's consulting firm when he was representing pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine.

The Telegraph also claims Atletico could enter the race to sign Morata this month, favouring a loan deal for the 26-year-old.

"It is true that I've heard this rumour, but he is not our player; he is Chelsea's and we have to respect them".

'I can't confirm or deny anything because coaches wait to see what the club can do.

"The most important thing is that the player himself wants to join Sevilla". "We need to wait until January 31".

"Right now, we are the players who are here and we shouldn't be thinking about players from elsewhere". Sevilla looks the best option for him, given he can return to his homeland and its a place where he can get well off very soon. "We played well in the second half".
