This move finalizes Chelsea’s intent of signing a striker after loosing a battle with Manchester united over Lukaku. Antonio Conte has been trying to sign Alvaro Morata for five years now, and though he has had to spend up to £70 million to get his man to Chelsea, it has the potential to be partnership made in heaven. Over the past years Conte has been in contact with Morata while he was in charge of both Juventus and Italy. Juventus bought the spanish international striker for Massimiliano Allegri, who replaced Conte and were eventually forced to sell Morata back to Los Blancos in 2016 due to a favourable buy-back clause of £23m. Despite Conte’s decision to text Costa his future would lie elsewhere and in turn cost the club millions when it came to bargaining over a price for the Atletico Madrid-forward, the move for Morata and Conte’s new deal suggests the club knows it is better off keeping the man who delivered them the Premier League title last season happy rather than worry about finances.
