"Chelsea is 100% the logical outcome" - Football expert convinced £80million striker will join Blues


Spanish football expert Sid Lowe is convinced that Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata will end up at Chelsea.

The Spain international was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but manager Jose Mourinho has eventually decided to sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton.

The 24-year-old is still searching for a new club and Stamford Bridge could be his future destination.

"On the face of it yes, 100 per cent it leaves Chelsea as the logical outcome [for Morata]," Lowe told ESPN FC.

"Obviously the other outcome at the moment, and let's see if other clubs emerge, is that he stays at Real Madrid.

"That's not what he wants to do because he doesn't entirely believe those promises that he will play a key part.

"Last season he's got a better goals to minute ratio than anyone else, he played over 40 games across the season but here's the key statistic for you, from the last-16 stage of the Champions League onwards, he only played 25 minutes.

"Morata feels that at his age, at 24, he needs to take that big step now. He hasn't quite done it and this was the opportunity to go to Manchester United."
