After months of speculation about his future, Chelsea confirmed on Wednesday night that they had agreed a fee with Real Madrid to bring him to Stamford Bridge this summer.
The move comes after the 24-year-old Spaniard was also linked with a transfer to Manchester United before the Red Devils tied up a deal to land Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
Morata is poised to become Chelsea’s fourth signing of the summer and the striker has revealed that Azpilicueta helped to convince him that a move to Stamford Bridge was a wise decision.
Speaking to Sky Sports News after arriving at Heathrow Airport on Thursday morning, Morata said: “I spoke with Azpilicueta and he told me everything is OK and if I need something he’s there.”
Morata will be hoping to help Chelsea retain their Premier League title next season after the Blues won the top-flight trophy in Antonio Conte’s first campaign in charge last term.
The west London side are also preparing for a return to the Champions League next season after missing out last term.
