Morata is a Blue
Alvaro Morata is set to join Chelsea this summer, after the Blues agreed a fee with Real Madrid, meaning they finally have a marquee signing of the summer, and can send Diego Costa back to where he came from without worrying about goals they might be missing.
That’s one thing, but the other rolling saga involving Chelsea this summer has of course been the loss of Romelu Lukaku, who ended up at Manchester United when Jose Mourinho got agent Paul Pogba to convince Lukaku he’d be better off in Manchester, and not west London.
Then many United fans claimed they were happier with Lukaku, they didn’t want Morata – while Chelsea fans did the reverse, mocked Lukaku’s first touch and pined for Morata, who they hoped would come.
Now he is, and the jokes on social media are exactly what you might expect, with United mocking Chelsea, Chelsea mocking United, and the neutrals mocking both of them.

Can someone explain the hype behind Morata? He's had his moments, but I see a 24-y/o striker who only once has exceeded 15 goals in a season

This is going to be interesting. Dyed his hair red, lost out on the transfer he really wanted etc. Lukaku vs Morata narrative all set up! https://t.co/txsvWZAxYT

Morata + Danilo + Mariano sold for €123m.
Pedro + Bravo + Alves + Sandro + Tello + Mathieu + Bartra + Song went for €50m.

Morata has played 2 UCL finals, won 2 or more league titles, but people from the deluded part of Manchester say he's unproven and untested

Morata dyed his hair red when he was linked to Utd and Drogba called Lukaku to try and convince him to sign for you. Finished champions.

Fabregas, 1-2 with Hazard… chip ball to Morata, Morata is one on one and he lobs the goalkeeper! What a brilliant team goal. #CFC

They paid more for Morata than we did for Lukaku. So that's a ANOTHER 'L' for Chelsea.

In terms of style of play, think Lukaku is a better fit for Man Utd and Morata a better fit for Chelsea. Everyone should be happy.
