Chelsea have agreed to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid in a £60m deal.
It’s left to the spaniard now to agree personal terms, and complete the transfer officially.
Morata, 24, would be Chelsea’s fourth signing after goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Antonio Rudiger and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko all joined the team.
Speaking on the imminent move Morata told AS on Wednesday;
“I’m going to the team managed by the coach who has placed the most faith in me, and that’s great for me,”
Morata joined Real Madrid’s youth team in 2008 and was handed his senior debut aged 18 in 2010.
The 6ft 3in striker moved to Italy in 2014, scoring 27 goals in two years for Juventus, winning both Serie A and the Coppa Italia twice and playing in the 2015 Champions League final.
Real exercised a buy-back option in June 2016 to take him back to the Bernabeu.
Morata has won 20 caps for Spain, scoring nine goals, since his international debut in 2014.
