Morata excited Atletico Madrid deal 'now official'

Alvaro Morata is delighted after Atletico Madrid and Chelsea agreed a deal to make his loan move permanent.

Chelsea announced yesterday that the striker will spend another season on loan before completing a permanent switch next summer.

"[I'm] happy. Now it's official," Morata wrote on Twitter.

"Now I will have time to give back all the efforts of the club and the support of the fans with hard work and goals. Thank you!!!"

Atletico Madrid will pay around 55 million euros for Morata - the figure that was agreed when his loan move from Chelsea was completed in January.
