ANTONIO CONTE finally won his battle for a striker after Chelsea agreed a club-record £68m fee with Real Madrid for Alvaro Morata.
Chelsea agreed a deal to sign Spain striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, subject to the player agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.
Morata rejoined Real last summer from Juventus, and scored 20 goals as they won La Liga and the Champions League.
But the majority of the 24-year-old’s appearances were as a substitute.
He is the Premier League champions’ fourth signing of the summer after Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willy Caballero and Antonio Rudiger.
