Alvaro Morata has admitted he is very happy over imminent transfer to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have agreed an initial £58m deal which could rise up to £70m with add-ons.

Morata has left Madrid’s camp and will arrive in London on Thursday morning to finalise his move to the club.

‘I am very happy, God willing, tomorrow I will be at Chelsea, a club that has always wanted me,’ Morata told Marca.

‘I’m not disappointed about anything, I’ve won four titles here, but now I only think of putting on the Chelsea shirt.

‘I want to grow up, if I didn’t I wouldn’t have left. I’d like to thank Zidane and wish him luck for the upcoming season.

‘Thanks to all the Madridistas who supported me. I will always wish Madrid the best. The last time I wore this shirt was in Cibeles.’

Also speaking to AS, the Spaniard further said:

“I’m going to the team managed by the coach who has placed the most faith in me, and that’s great for me,” Morata told AS.

The Madrid born striker has always been on Conte’s radar for a long time.

“I am very conscious of that, he bet on me for Juventus, but left before I arrived; then he wanted me at Chelsea come what may.

“He knows me better than I could imagine, I am sure, and that is important: it motivates you to work hard, train well.”

‘I feel indebted to him because he is the coach that most trusted in me, most wanted me.’

The Spain international started only 18 games for Madrid last season and was unhappy with his lack of playing time.
