Well, we already have the official message. Real Madrid has informed on their website that it has managed to come to an agreement with Chelsea and Alvaro Morata is going to be transfered to Stamford Bridge.
It was one of the longest transfer sag this summer. The Spaniard was already one foot in Manchester United, then he tried on Milan’s T-shirt. And finally it came out that he would now replace Diego Costa in the England squad.
Morata has yet to complete medical tests, but this seems to be just a formality. Alvaro signed a contract with The Blues for five years. In the new club he will earn £ 170,000 per week. Pretty good! The Royals got 80 million euros for their player (plus 5 millions in the assets).
Generally for me this is one of the strangest staffing moves for Real. Morata is a fantastic and incredibly effective player. In the last 43 games he scored 20 goals and scored 6 assists.
Karim Benzema remained at the Santiago Bernabéu which from a season to a season is getting weaker and weaker. In addition Zinédine Zidane announced that he did not need new players in the attack. Unless Kylian Mbappé agrees to move to Madrid. But that is not going to happen.
