Alvaro Morata In London: Striker Reveals Why He's Joining Chelsea by Jirate(m): 12:08pm On Jul 20, 2017
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.

I Love The Blues,
One Spanish striker for another, a “wrestling” one for a “footballing” one is Good Business,
Chelsea are the Best in the Game of buying Good Footballers. I have always wanted this Guy in Chelsea since I am of the informed opinion that he has more European Club football Exposure than Lukaku.
Moreover, whatever Man U can Do, Chelsea can do it better. This was one player they just were unable to Sign and now the Guy is on his way to the Bridge, while the one , no die hard Chelsea fan really want back, Lukaku; was bought by Man U at a higher prize. 75 Billion Million
Come next season, football will be really interesting from top clubs like Chelsea, Man U etc, but I am with the Blues all the Way to the Top once again.

Good morning sir/ma
please, I fractured my wrist and a cast was placed on it since 6 weeks ago.
my concern now is that, I heard a lot of people saying "An arm cast becomes itchy whenever it's healing" but in my own case, for the past 6 weeks that the arm cast has been there, I've never felt any itches on the wrist.


What could be the cause?

Funny how Morata was thought to be a United player and ended up in Chelsea, whereas Lukaku was destined for Chelsea initially, ended up in United.

Gonna be interesting season in terms of strikers rivalry.

The golden boot race will be amazing - Lukaku, Laca, Morata, Kane, Aguero, G.Jesus.

Lukaku is younger, more physically gifted, has been playing longer at the top level, has scored at least 10 league goals in 5 consecutive PL seasons, scored 25 league goals last season, all while never having the benefit of playing for a top team.

At the age of 19/20 he scored 17 league goals playing for West Brom.

This is also ignoring that Lukaku's integrated into English culture, and fluent in multiple languages.

Morata has not had a single exceptional season
