After losing out on their first-choice target Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea seem to have finally gotten another striker after agreeing on a deal with Real Madrid for Morata.


The 24-year-old striker will leave Los Angeles where he has been with the Real Madrid squad and will fly to London where he will complete the signing of his five-year contract with Chelsea worth about £155,000-a-week.

Morata will now work under Antonio Conte who signed him from Real Madrid for Juventus in 2014 but left to take up the Italy job just a month later.
