With Diego Costa seemingly on his way out of the club, Chelsea were forced to act quickly in their attempts to sign a striker.

At this cost, the 24-year-old Spaniard far surpasses the £50 million forked out by Chelsea in 2011 for Fernando Torres, making Morata the most expensive Spanish player in history.
