Chelsea to sign Real Madrid striker

Reports in Spain suggest that Real Madrid have already agreed to sell Alvaro Morata to Chelsea at the end of the season

The Spanish striker has returned to Bernabeu at the beginning of the season, but never quite managed to establish himself as a starting player in Zidane’s team.

Real Madrid have sold Morata to Juventus for €20m in 2014, but brought him back after only two seasons, by paying €30m and triggering the buy-back clause in the contract between the two clubs. It now seems that Real Madrid were only looking to make a profit out of his transfer, as Chelsea are now prepared to pay €60m for the striker.

Morata is considered to be the perfect replacement for Diego Costa, who has recently voiced his unsettlement with life in London.
