What Alvaro Morata Told Real Madrid Before He Left To Join Chelsea
He may have cost Chelsea a club record £60million in the summer, but it looks like the purchase of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid was shrewd business.
The Spaniard has scored three goals in four Premier League games so far this season, as well as five goals in four games for club and country.

A record that shows Zinedine Zidane he was wrong to sell the 24-year-old.
In fact, a report from Spanish publication Don Balon has revealed what Morata told Real Madrid president Florentino Perez before he left the Bernabeu to join Premier League champions Chelsea.

In a meeting with Perez, the striker warned him that they would regret selling him to Antonio Conte's side in the summer.
Ironically, Los Blancos have struggled in their opening three games, recording two draws and a win against Deportivo.
Draws against Levante and Valencia have sparked concern amongst supporters and the latest news surrounding Karim Benzema will heighten those doubts.

Benzema suffered a hamstring injury during Madrid's 1-1 draw against Levante on Saturday, and fears of a possible lay-off have been confirmed by Spanish publication AS.
Zinedine Zidane's side have missed Cristiano Ronaldo's contribution in recent weeks, as the Spanish giants continue to struggle.
Was Madrid's decision to sell Morata the right one?
So far this season.
Mariano has 4 goals.
Morata has 3 goals and 2 assists in EPL.
Benzema has 1 injury.
