Alvaro Morata Reveals Why He is Joining Chelsea

Chelsea announced yesterday they had agreed a fee with Real Madrid for the services of Morata, which is understood to be around £70million.

This morning he touched down at Heathrow ahead of his medical and was quizzed by Sky Sports reporter Paul Gilmour over the impending move. When asked why he’s signing for Chelsea, Morata said: “Because it’s the best club. “Antonio Conte is one of the best coaches in the world and I’m so happy to work with Antonio.”

Morata was wanted by Manchester United earlier this summer but a deal failed to materialise, with the Red Devils signing Romelu Lukaku from Everton instead. Morata refused to comment on the collapsed deal and is just excited to get started at Chelsea. When asked why a move to United broke down, he said: “I don’t know. The most important thing is I am here, I’m playing for Chelsea. Finally I’m here.”

Morata revealed he had spoken to Chelsea defender and Spain team-mate Cesar Azpilicueta before agreeing to the move. “I spoke with Azpilicueta. He told me everything was OK here,” Morata said.

The Blues have been in the market for a striker for the entirety of the transfer window and missed out on Lukaku. Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is in need of a new frontman after telling last season’s top scorer Diego Costa he can leave the club. Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Torino’s Andrea Belotti and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero have all been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

But Morata is the chosen one and looks set to complete his switch to west London in the coming days.
