Chelsea have announced the signing of Álvaro Morata from Real Madrid on a five-year contract. The Spain striker is the Premier League champions’ third major signing of the summer, following the arrival of Antonio Rüdiger from Roma and Tiemoué Bakayoko from Monaco and reportedly costs in the region of £58m.


“I am so happy to be here. It’s an incredible emotion to be part of this big club,” said Morata, 24. “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.

Morata is expected to be a direct replacement for his compatriot Diego Costa, who has been told by the manager, Antonio Conte, that he no longer has a future at the club and is expected shortly to join Atlético Madrid, from whom he moved to Chelsea in July 2014 for £32m.
