Premier League Champions, Chelsea have reached agreement with Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata for a fee reported to be 80 million euros.
Spanish radio, Cadena Ser said on Wednesday, “He has reached an agreement with Chelsea and is right now looking for a flight to London.
The radio station explain further that the striker will be leaving the Real Madrid training camp in the United States as soon as he can.
The Blues had tabled a £ 62 million (70m euros, $ 80 m) bid for the 24 – year- old last week but Madrid, have agreed the sale for 80 million euros.
Cadena Cer added, “Real Madrid will get 80 million euros for the sale, and the deal will be signed to make him a Stamford Bridge player.”
The champions brought Morata back from a loan spell at Juventus a year ago, where he played under the now Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
Morata would replace Diego Costa, whom Conte told at the end of last season he was no longer needed at the club.
