Alvaro Morata says he was “destined” to work with Antonio Conte atChelsea and believes the club can beat his former employers Real Madrid.
“I know Antonio wanted me in the past and I really want to work with Antonio, and finally destiny put us together,” Morata told Chelsea’s official website.
“I can’t wait to play for him and for Chelsea and to win together.
“It was disappointing in 2014 when he went to Italy, but I played well and had a good year at Juventus, but I really want to work with this coach and finally I can.
“I know his work, the staff. I know it is a lot of tactics and I really like this game and I know how to play with this system.”
Morata admitted he was excited to be making the move to England after leaving Real for the second time in his career.
‘It is the perfect situation. I decided to play in the Premier League and I want to play in Antonio’s team.
‘Now I need to work hard, score goals and to play well for the team. There are very good players here and I think we can do something amazing this year.
‘It is hard to leave Madrid but it is not so hard when you come to a club like Chelsea, with these players and with this coach, and I think we can play against Real Madrid and Barcelona and win.’
‘When I was little I watched with my dad and it is incredible, a lot of goals and fast matches and I really want to play here.
‘When I was little I saw Didier Drogba, Andriy Shevchenko, Fernando Torres and thought probably in a few years I will take this place, and now it is the dream to take the Chelsea No 9 shirt. I can’t wait to play at Stamford Bridge and in the Premier League.’
