Chelsea Fans Are Saying The Same Thing About This Alvaro Morata Clip
| Last updated
Chelsea officially confirmed the signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid in a club record deal yesterday, and in a clip posted on the club's official Twitter account, fans were saying the exact saying thing about the striker.
After signing a five-year contract, the Spaniard took part in some light training - with Chelsea's new signing doing a few kick-ups at the club's Cobham training ground and Chelsea capturing it on camera:
Chelsea and Manchester United doing a role reversal in terms of their top striker targets going to the other club, Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku, has caused some sort of weird duel between fans of both clubs and so when that clip of Morata went out on his first day, literally every reply from Chelsea supporters was a dig at Lukaku, and his first touch.
We're never, ever, going to get away from the Lukaku-Morata comparisons, are we? It's going to be a long, long season.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte maintains that Morata, who he signed for Juventus before taking the Italy job, has always been his first-choice to replace out-of-favour Diego Costa.
Speaking to the official Chelsea website, he had the following to say:
"I think for sure he is a good signing for us. Morata is a young player but has a lot of experience and played in the past with Real Madrid and Juventus and Real Madrid and has a lot of experience for the league and the Champions League. He is young and can improve a lot.
"Morata is our first choice. He's a good striker, a player with the right prospects for Chelsea. He can show his value with us."
