Chelsea Agree £60m Morata Deal With Real Madrid

Chelsea Football Club has agreed a transfer deal with Real Madrid for the signing of Alvaro Morata.

The deal, which is reportedly about £60m is now subject to personal terms and a medical, with the 24-year-old striker expected to sign a 5-year contract.

Morata told Marca on Wednesday night: “I’m not disappointed about anything, I’ve won four titles here, but now I only think of putting on the Chelsea shirt,”

“I am very happy, God willing, tomorrow I will be at Chelsea, a club that has always wanted me,”

“I want to grow up, if I didn’t I wouldn’t have left. I’d like to thank Zidane and wish him luck for the upcoming season.”

Chelsea turned their attention to Morata after missing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, the Spaniard becomes Chelsea’s fourth signing of this transfer window following the switch of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, defender Antonio Rudiger and goalkeeper Willy Caballero to Stamford Bridge.

Morata, who featured predominantly from the bench for Real Madrid last season, scored 20 goals for the Los Blancos en route winning the La Liga and the Champions League titles.
