Spain striker Alvaro Morata is now officially a Chelsea player, the club announced on Friday.
"Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce Alvaro Morata has completed his move from Real Madrid on a five-year-deal," the Premier League champions stated on their official website.
"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."
Morata, 24, told the Chelsea website: "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."
Chelsea's technical director and former Super Eagles defender 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.
"Alvaro has proven class at the highest level and his quality will be a huge asset to Antonio and the squad."Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
