Morata’s career has been a bit stop start so far having had two spells with the European champions while spending time at Juventus in between them.

But despite the constant chopping and changing it’s evident he’s an extremely popular figure in the Madrid changing room.

And this video of him saying his goodbyes proves that:

Chelsea have moved to snap up Morata after missing out on number one target Romelu Lukaku, who opted for Manchester United instead.
