Chelsea will become just the third club Alvaro Morata has played for his in professional career. While it seems like he’s been around for forever, he’s still just 24 years old and entering what should be his best years. However, that won’t stop us at looking back at what he’s done so far to get an idea of what the club will be getting.
Real Madrid is obviously where the Spaniard became a household name around the footballing world. He came up through the Atletico Madrid academy and bounced around before winding up at Los Blancos in 2008. He made his first-team debut in 2010 and has spent the last seven years fluctuating from the bench to sporadic playing time. Even with inconsistent opportunities, he still managed to score 31 total goals in his time at the Bernabeu.
In 2014, Morata got a new lease on life as he was loaned to Serie A giants, Juventus. He spent two full seasons in Turin, scoring 27 goals in that time.
As the videos of all the goals shows, no matter where he goes he fills the net with goals when given the chance. Playing behind a world-class striker in Karim Benzema has to be frustrating for a player of Morata’s talents. Now that he’s free of any restraints, he will be relied upon heavily at Stamford Bridge to score and score often.
