Chelsea Agree Morata Transfer Fee

Manchester United bid for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata before signing Romelu Lukaku

Morata, 24, scored 22 goals in 47 appearances last season after returning to the Bernabeu from Juventus, where he worked with Conte during his time as coach in Turin.

The move reportedly comes at the request of Antonio Conte, who had attempted to sign the Spain global for Chelsea last summer.

Manchester City have reportedly beaten Real Madrid in the race to sign Real Madrid full-back Danilo.

Now a two time former Real Madrid striker.

"The club wishes to express its thanks for the dedication, professionalism and exemplary conduct displayed by the player over the years".

With the agreement, the Spanish worldwide is expected to leave Real Madrid's pre-season training camp in Los Angeles to finalise his move to the Premier League.

An expected move back to Atletico Madrid for Costa is complicated by Diego Simeone's LaLiga side being subjected to a Federation Internationale de Football Association player registration ban.

Having only rejoined Real from Juventus last season, after the club activated his buyback clause, Morata enjoyed the most productive season of his career.

Conte, fresh from signing a lucrative new contract, has now turned his attention to landing a replacement for Diego Costa, who looks set to move on this summer.

The Spaniard was apparently close to signing for Manchester United earlier in the window, but the clubs could not agree on a fee, as confirmed by Jose Mourinho.

After being told by Blues boss Antonio Conte that he would no longer be required at the club.
