DONE DEAL: Chelsea confirm selling Morata to Atletico Madrid

Chelsea have confirmed they're selling Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid.

The striker will remain on loan in the Spanish capital for the 2019-20 campaign, after which the agreement will become permanent.

Morata arrived in west London from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017 and went on to score 24 goals in 72 appearances for the Blues.

He moved to Atletico in January and has found the net six times in 15 appearances for the club so far.

Morata was in the youth ranks at Atletico before moving to Getafe and then Real Madrid where he made his professional bow.
