Chelsea and Real Madrid have agreed a fee for Alvaro Morata and the striker will be in London today to seal the deal with the Blues.
The 24-year-old was with the Real Madrid squad on Wednesday before the deal was struck and he visited Real’s UCLA training base in Los Angeles one final time to bid farewell to both his teammate and the coaching staff, including manager Zinedine Zidane.
Real Madrid’s official website bade farewell to Morata and the would-be Chelsea striker is seen embracing the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Isco before heading back to the hotel early to collect his things.
His teammates at Real Madrid poured tributes for their outgoing striker and that of Isco was the most emotional.
Moratoski, toda la suerte del mundo. Disfruta de tu nueva etapa y sigue metiendo goles como lo haces.Te echaremos de menos. @AlvaroMorata

Via a post on Instagram, Isco also wished Morata good luck: “Brother, you’re leaving now… I’m going to miss you so much. I just hope you are happy and find everything you deserve. I love you.”
