Chelsea and Real Madrid have today agreed terms for the transfer of 24 year old Spanish striker Alvaro Morata. He is now required to agree the personal terms following a medical.
He had this to say according to MARCA: “I’m very happy. God willing, tomorrow I’ll be at Chelsea. A club that’s always wanted me. I already talked to Conte.”
He also had this to say about Antonio Conte: “Conte is the manager who most ‘bet’ on me, without even ever having had me in his team. I am very conscious of that: he bet on me for Juventus, but left before I arrived; then he wanted me at Chelsea. Conte knows me better than I could imagine, I am sure, and that is important: it motivates you to work hard, train well. I feel indebted to him because he is the coach that most trusted in me, most wanted me.”
Morata has also said his goodbyes to his so to be former Real Madrid team-mates today.
