Chelsea unveil Morata in club record £60m move

Chelsea have completed the signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid for £60.million.

The Spain striker flew into Heathrow terminal on Thursday, and the Blues have now confirmed the club-record deal after he passed his medical at Cobham.

Morata has put pen to paper on a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge worth in the region of £155,000 a week, and he will join up with the rest of the Chelsea squad in Singapore next week.

 Upon completing his transfer, Morata told the club’s official website: ‘I am so happy to be here. It’s an incredible emotion to be part of this big club. I am looking to work hard, score as many goals as I can and to win as many trophies as possible.’

Technical director Michael Emenalo added: ‘We are delighted to complete Alvaro’s signing and welcome him to the club. We believe he can make a great impact for Chelsea and look forward to seeing him in action.

‘Alvaro has proven class at the highest level and his quality will be a huge asset to Antonio and the squad.’

Chelsea uploaded a picture of Morata signing the contract via their Instagram account, which Diego Costa liked. The wantaway striker will be hoping this new signing can pave the way for him to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

Morata, who said his goodbyes to Real Madrid on Wednesday, becomes Chelsea’s fourth signing this summer after the arrivals of goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Antonio Rudiger and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
