Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata on a five-year contract.

Morata, 24, joins on a deal reported to be worth an initial £58 million, potentially rising to £70m.

The Spain international was born in Madrid and progressed through Real’s academy and B team to make his first-team debut in 2010.

He moved to Italian champions Juventus in a deal worth nearly £18m in 2014, and after two seasons during which he won Serie A and the Coppa Italia twice, Madrid exercised a buy-back clause to bring him back to the Bernabeu for around £27m.

Last season, he scored 20 goals in all competitions as Madrid won La Liga and the Champions League titles.

On Wednesday, Chelsea confirmed that a deal had been agreed for Morata to move to Stamford Bridge

Conte has already signed Germany defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma for a reported £29m, midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco for a reported fee of £40m and goalkeeper Willy Caballero following his release by Manchester City.

Chelsea are currently in China for preseason preparations and face Premier League rivals Arsenal in Beijing on Saturday.

They then travel to Singapore for the International Champions Cup, facing Bayern Munich on July 25 and Inter Milan on July 29.
