Alvaro Morata

The incredible Alvaro Morata stat that will make you go WTF

History

Chelsea are no strangers to breaking transfer fees, and now after agreeing a fee for Alvaro Morata, they’ve been involved in another record.

They’re set to make Alvaro Morata the most expensive player in Spanish history, breaking the transfer record held for Fernando Torres – another Chelsea player.

In fact, from the top six, Chelsea are involved in either buying or selling three of the players.


 

Goals

Chelsea fans of course think little about transfer fees in terms of money, what they want – and need – is goals.

After seeing the pre-season Romelu Lukaku has had for Manchester United, the pressure will be on Morata, who is confident he can do it in the Premier League, and considering he performed for Real Madrid, one of the biggest and least forgiving clubs in the world, and also for Juventus, Antonio Conte may end up thankful Lukaku chose United.

That being said, Morata is now the number one man for Chelsea in terms of their goals, and the pressure really will be on, especially given Eden Hazard will be ruled out for the initial games of the season due to his ankle injury.
