Alvaro Morata has joined Atletico Madrid on a permanent deal from Chelsea.

The striker will remain on loan in the Spanish capital for the 2019-20 campaign, after which the agreement will become permanent.

Morata arrived in west London from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017 and went on to score 24 goals in 72 appearances for the Blues.

He moved to Atletico in January and has found the net six times in 15 appearances for the club so far.

Morata was in the youth ranks at Atletico before moving to Getafe and then Real Madrid where he made his professional bow.

After scoring 45 goals in 83 matches for Real's Castilla side, he made his senior debut as a substitute in a 3-1 win over Real Zaragoza in 2010.

After two campaigns in Italy, which saw him find the net on 27 occasions over the course of 93 appearances, Real exercised their buyback clause in his contract.

But he would spend just one more term with Real, scoring 20 goals in 43 games before his £60million move to Stamford Bridge.

He was part of Chelsea's FA Cup winning side in 2017-18 having previously won two La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey crowns, two Champions Leagues, two Serie A titles and two Coppas Italia.
