Chelsea agree deal to sign Real Madrid's Morata

Morata's arrival in London could signal the end of worldwide team-mate Diego Costa at Chelsea.

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta- Alvaro Morata has made a decision to leave Real Madrid and to play for Chelsea.

The Spaniard told The Guardian in April that Chelsea boss Conte, who was instrumental in persuading him to sign for Juve, had given him self belief and that he was looking forward to working with the Italian one day.

Having left him out of their 25-man preseason tour squad, the Blues seem set to sell Nemanja Matic, but they have gained £40m midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.

The Real Madrid striker arrived in London on Thursday to discuss personal terms with the club.

As with Koepka, the last time Spieth teed it up, he won - at the Travelers Championship the week after the U.S. When Harrington won the last time the Open was played here, the winning score was 3-over-par 283.

With the chance to now work with Antonio Conte after being denied last time out at Juventus, the Spanish global will surely relish playing regularly for Chelsea and proving that he can be a prolific goalscorer as well as a key cog up front to link everything together.

Morata had previously been linked with a move to Manchester United, but their interest ended after signing Romelu Lukaku from Everton for an initial £75 million.

Asked how close he came to joining Manchester United, Morata said: "I don't know, the most important thing is I'm here playing for Chelsea".

Basically being told to "piss off" by Antonio Conte, Diego Costa is on his way out of Stamford Bridge, and the signature of Alvaro Morata is doing little to dispel that idea.

"I'm not disappointed [at how my return to Madrid went]".

Gargash said further that the pressure of the crisis "pays off" and could lead to "a sensible change of direction as a whole". Another point of departure is Qatar's ties with Iran, with whom it shares one of the world's biggest gas fields.

"They did it with Alvaro and Alvaro is a very good player for them".

Conte has been chasing Morata and Rudiger for more than one year.

Costa scored 20 times in Chelsea's 2016-17 Premier League title-winning campaign, but the 28-year-old is said to have had a strained relationship with Conte in the second half of the season.

"He is a good player, the right prospect for Chelsea and hopes to show his value with us".
