Morata scored 20 goals for Real last season after rejoining Los Blancos from Juventus, although the majority of his appearances for Zinedine Zidane's side were as a substitute.

Conte reportedly choose last season's Pl second top scorer Romelu Lukaku as his possible replacement, however, Manchester United made a last moment push for the striker and snatched the Everton striker from their nose.

They were willing to match Real Madrid's hefty asking price for the forward, while Jose Mourinho's club was not.

The Premier League champions are expected to pay the European champions an initial fee of £58m.

The former-Juventus striker, who was the subject of interest from AC Milan, is clearly of the opinion that Antonio Conte will give him the minutes he desires.

At this cost, the 24-year-old Spaniard far surpasses the £50 million forked out by Chelsea in 2011 for Fernando Torres, making Morata the most expensive Spanish player in history.

Well-liked "nameless" assassin Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams ) praised the tune, and sat beside Sheeran at the fire. As EW.com points out, some diehard fans of " GoT " found the cameo distracting from the wider, more concentrated narrative.

In a short statement, the Blues said: "Chelsea Football Club and Real Madrid have agreed terms for the transfer of Alvaro Morata to Stamford Bridge.

But it's Real Madrid's right to ask for their players the amount of money that they want", the Portuguese tactician told reporters during United's pre-season tour of the United States, according to the Daily Telegraph.

He is the Premier League champions' fourth signing of the summer after Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willy Caballero and Antonio Rudiger.

Conte, fresh from signing a lucrative new contract, has now turned his attention to landing a replacement for Diego Costa, who looks set to move on this summer.

Spain striker Morata is poised to join Chelsea in a deal worth around £75m.
