Official: Alvaro Morata completes Chelsea move


Chelsea have announced the completed signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid on a five-year contract after he finalised personal terms and completed a medical.

The Spain international is the Blues’ club-record purchase for an initial fee believed to be in the region of £60million, and potentially rising to £70m, according to various reports.

Morata was not a regular for Real Madrid last season and had been linked with a number of clubs for much of the summer, with the likes of Manchester United and AC Milan previously interested in him.

However, Antonio Conte is a long-time admirer of the player whom he signed for Juventus in 2014, though he never got to work with the player as he suddenly left the club to take over the Italian national team.
