Chelsea agree deal to sign Real striker Alvaro Morata

Chelsea have agreed to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata for an estimated 80 million euros … a record transfer fee for a Spanish player.

It makes him the eighth most expensive footballer in the world.




The 24-year-old who scored 20 goals last season after rejoining Real fromJuventus, recently helped Madrid win a second successive Champions League title.

Although he’s had a few spells on the substitute bench he has a knack of grabbing vital goals and late winners.

Morata has won 20 caps for Spain, scoring nine goals, since his international debut in 2014.
