Alvaro Morata Completes Loan Move To Atletico Madrid

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has joined Atletico Madrid on loan until the end of the 2019-20 season.

Morata, 26, joined Chelsea from Real Madrid in July 2017 for a then club-record fee of £60m on a five-year contract.

Morata made 47 Premier League appearances for the Blues, scoring 16 times.

Morata played for Atletico as a youngster before joining Real Madrid.

His last appearance for Chelsea was against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on 5 January where he scored both goals in their 2-0 victory.

“Morata has proven himself as a prolific goalscorer in some of Europe’s most competitive leagues,” Atletico said on their website.

Morata said: “I’m very happy and proud to be here. I can’t wait to start training, meet my new team-mates and play.”
