Five-year contract agreed: Chelsea to unveil signing of impressive #9 next week


Chelsea have finally struck a deal with Alvaro Morata, according to the Daily Star.

The Real Madrid striker has agreed personal terms with the Blues and will sign a five-year contract with the club.

After having a £51.2million offer rejected by the Spanish giants, Chelsea will make an improved bid of £64million to finally secure the services of the Spaniard.

Morata has been one of Antonio Conte's main summer targets since the start of the transfer window and the Italian has made personal contact with the player to convince him to make a move to Stamford Bridge.

The 23-year-old was also a target for Arsenal and Juventus.

Both clubs pulled out of the race to sign the striker because Real Madrid's £64 million asking price was too high.
