Jose Mourinho: 'Alvaro Morata will be good for Chelsea'

In the end, who needs Romelu Lukaku?

"Manchester United? I don't know about that".

The 24-year-old scored 15 league goals in 14 starts for Real Madrid last season as well as three in the UEFA Champions League as he helped the club to a league and European Cup double.

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.

And now with the lack of strikers in the market and Chelsea's unwillingness to match the high fees for Torino's Andrea Belotti and Dortmund's Piere Emerick Aubameyang, the search again led to Morata.

The Blues have been desperately searching for a striker.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Conte may have missed out on Lukaku, but he's clearly keen to bring in an alternative with Diego Costa set for an exit". Costa has since filmed himself partying in an Atletico Madrid shirt, prompting further speculation that he could join the La Liga side. Fans were getting agitated by the repeated reports of imminent deals, but the lack of an official announcement.

And he is looking forward to the challenge of filling his countryman's boots.

Morata is a wonderfully talented player who was under-utilised at Real Madrid.

"Morata, 24, is a Spanish worldwide forward, and helped Real to lift a second successive Champions League last season". Join the The Pride of London team! "I remember talking to my dad then and him saying 'This guy (Conte) is going to win the League there (in England)". However, questions remain. £70 million of thereabouts represents quite the risk for a man who has no Premier League experience and was not a guaranteed starter for Real Madrid previous year. Neither club would have wanted Morata to pick up a training-ground injury that could jeopardise the move.

The Evening Standard reported Conte was furious to lose out on the Belgian striker to Manchester United, while The Telegraph reported that Chelsea belatedly matched United's offer.
