LONDON: Chelsea have completed the £60m signing of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata on a five-year-deal.
The Spain forward scored 20 goals last season after rejoining Real from Juventus.
The 24-year-old won La Liga and the Champions League, but the majority of his appearances were as a substitute.
Morata is the Blues’ fourth summer recruit, after goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Antonio Rudiger and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
Morata will now join up with the squad on the pre-season tour of Asia.
Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo said: “We believe he can make a great impact for Chelsea and look forward to seeing him in action.
“Alvaro has proven class at the highest level and his quality will be a huge asset.”
