Alvaro Morata: Chelsea fans will be punching the air - Pat Nevin

Alvaro Morata admits he will be delighted to finally become a Chelsea player after discussing what he says has been a "strange summer" amid Manchester United's failed attempts to sign him.

This has then seen Chelsea agree a deal with Real Madrid for Morata and Mourinho was asked about the Spanish striker joining his former club on Wednesday.

Alvaro Morata has said an unofficial goodbye to Real Madrid ahead of his big-money transfer to Chelsea.

Chelsea bade farewell to club legend John Terry, who joined Aston Villa at the end of his contract, but they gained £34 million centre-back Antonio Rudiger from Roma. He was used largely behind first choice striker Karim Benzema, however, it now seems he did enough to convince the Premier giant to move for him.

Morata will be Chelsea's third major signing of the summer having already acquired Germany defender Antonio Rüdiger (£29 million) and France midfielder Tiemoué Bakayoko (£40 million).

Last season Morata made 43 appearances in all competitions for Real Madrid, scoring 20 goals in the process. During two years with the Turin giants, Morata scored just 15 league goals in 62 games.

"I'm not interested in what Chelsea FC does, really", Mourinho said, speaking from Houston during the club's pre-season tour of the United States.

Lukaku has more experience playing in a defensive set-up as Everton have often played that way against the sides above them, although Morata had to do his fair share of defensive work when at Juventus. "Many things have happened", Morata said.

"Many thanks to all the Madridistas who have supported me once more, I will always wish the best to Madrid".

'I have spoken with Fernando, who has told me he'll give me a hand with whatever I need, ' Morata told Spanish outlet AS. I said yeah, I'd like to, that if I had to leave I would nearly certainly go to London, but that I didn't know what Madrid would do. Conte's Juventus faced Morata's Real Madrid in the Champions League.
