Alvaro Morata Signs For Chelsea
Alvaro Morata,the Spanish 24 year old forward has completed his from from Real Madrid to Chelsea and signed a 5 year contract with the club.
Morata will now join up with the squad on its pre-season tour of Asia. A strong, quick and skilful forward adept at leading the line and bringing his team-mates into play, Morata’s movement on and off the ball make him a constant threat to opposition defenders, whether he is running at speed from deep or looking to strike in the 18-yard box.
His goals come in all forms – outstanding long-range efforts, poachers’ finishes, headers and one-on-ones. He is also comfortable on either foot.
Upon completing his transfer, Morata said: ‘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. He also added ‘Alvaro has proven class at the highest level and his quality will be a huge asset to Antonio and the squad.’
Morata played at Real in 2012-13 and 2013-14 season.
He provided a fine assist for Karim Benzema in an El Clasico victory in the first season, as well as scoring his first goal for the club – a winner at Levante.
In the next campaign, Morata scored eight league goals, averaging one every 70 minutes under the stewardship of former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti. He also opened his Champions League account that year as Real won the trophy for the 10th time. In the final, Morata was introduced with his side a goal down; they ended up beating their great city rivals Atletico 4-1.
Then he joined Juventus in 2014-15 season and helped them to win Serie A title in 2014-15 and 2015-16 back to back. He also helped them reach the Champions League final in his first season in Turin, but this time the Spaniard ended up on the losing side despite equalising from close range against Barcelona in Berlin.
Real exercised a buyback option last summer and he enjoyed the most profitable season of his career to date on his return to the Bernabeu, scoring 20 goals in all competitions and winning La Liga and the Champions League, when he came on as a late substitute against his former club.

Morata is also a regular for Spain, the 24-year-old has scored nine goals in 20 appearances – including three at last year’s European Championships.
All hopes are there that Morata would fit in Chelsea side and will be an asset for the club to reach the top of England again as well as in Europe.
