Chelsea agree '80 million euro' deal with Real for Morata

Alvaro Morata describes Chelsea as "the best club" ahead of his likely transfer to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid.

Chelsea have agreed terms with Real Madrid for the signing of striker Alvaro Morata, the Premier League club have announced.

The Spain global must now agree personal terms and pass a medical to complete the transfer.

"He has reached an agreement with Chelsea and is right now looking for a flight to London", respected radio station Cadena Ser said on its website as it explained that the striker will be leaving the Madrid training camp in the United States as soon as he can. According to reports, he will sign a five-year contract worth around £7.9m a year.

Morata scored 22 goals for club and country last season in 47 appearances, but could not earn a regular place in Zinedine Zidane's side due to competition for places battling against figures such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.

Instead, Jose Mourinho brought in Romelu Lukaku from Everton for £75m.

"But it's always a worry when you sign a player who hasn't played in the Premier League".

Costa is desperate to return to his former club after being told by text that he was not part of Antonio Conte's plans.

"I feel indebted to him because he's the coach that most trusted in me, most wanted me, who made me feel I could perform at the highest level", Morata told the newspaper.

Costa, who has been left out of Chelsea's pre-season tour of Asia, left Conte furious in a recent Instagram post.
