Chelsea appear to have already recruited a new striker this summer. Hang on, that’s Alvaro Morata.
When the Spaniard signed for Chelsea in a club-record deal last summer, expectations were incredibly high. This was the move that he craved in order to establish himself as one of the best strikers in the world, but thing didn’t go to plan in his debut season as a Blue.
Struggles with form and fitness derailed Morata’s season. Chelsea fans fell out of love with him and Morata fell out of favour with manager Antonio Conte.
With Conte departing, Morata will be provided with a clean slate. He appears determined to prove that he is the right man to lead Chelsea’s line next term, and looks incredibly sharp in training.
The below video is a compilations of some of Morata’s finest finishes in pre-season training so far. Long may it continue, we’ll need him to be at the top of his game if we want to have any hope of breaking back into the top four.
