Morata leaves Real Madrid for second time, joins Chelsea

LONDON (AP) Alvaro Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid on Friday and is set to take over from Diego Costa as the main striker for the English champion.

Chelsea announced the signing of the Spain international without giving a fee. He signed for five years.

Costa was one of Chelsea's key players in its run to the Premier League title last season. But he said last month that he was told by coach Antonio Conte he wasn't wanted for the coming season.
