Diego Simeone's side confirmed the signing out-of-favour Blues striker Alvaro Morata on a loan deal, with an option to make the move permanent at a reported fee of £48.5 million (R867 million). 
 
As a youngster, the 26-year-old had a stint in Atletico's youth academy and expressed his happiness at being able to play for the club.
 
 
"There were times where I had to wait at the gate with my father because, as ballboys, we had to be at the game two hours before it started," he was quoted as saying by Marca.
 
"I would enjoy myself and watch Atletico. Whenever I see a ballboy, I see myself.I dreamt of someday being on that pitch.
 
"I am proud to be here. I know the stadium, I know the shirts; I am very happy and proud to be here.
 
"I cannot wait to train, to be with my teammates and, above all, to be able to play here."Before the move was even announced, Morata stated that he had been watching Atletico's games in anticipation of his arrival.
 
"I am very happy because it means so much to be here. I've been thinking about it for a long time, and I've seen the team's last few matches."I've experienced them like I was already here.
 
"I felt like I was part of the team long ago, thanks to my teammates and the club. I am very motivated.I am going to give my all for this shirt and for this club." he concluded.
 
 
 
The Spaniard failed to justify the staggering £60 million (R1 billion) transfer fee that Chelsea forked out for him, scoring 24 goals in 72 appearances in all competitions since arriving at Stamford Bridge in 2017.
