Alvaro Morata: His first words after joining Chelsea from Real Madrid for £60million


New Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata was full of praise for Real Madrid but is already looking forward to enjoying his spell at Chelsea.

The Spain international is Antonio Conte's fourth summer signing.

He joins Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko.

"It has been a slightly strange summer for me," Morata told As. on Wednesday.

"A lot of things have happened. In the end, if God wishes, tomorrow I will be at a club that have wanted me for years, with a gaffer whom I have spoken to constantly.

"So I'm really happy. I have been training hard for whatever outcome, but I was clear that this was my objective. It's sad to leave Real Madrid, but I hope that everything will go well for me at Chelsea.

"It has been a pleasure to play for Madrid, and I will always be with them apart from when they play Chelsea.

"[Returning at Real?] A third time, it's difficult. Right now I'm not considering it."
