Fernando Torres: What I Told Morata Before He Joined Chelsea

Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres revealed the conversation he had with Alvaro Morata before he went on to become the Chelsea most expensive signing ever.

The 24-year-old striker, who was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in the latest transfer window, moved to Stamford Bridge for an estimated fee of €80 million (R1.2 billion) from Real Madrid.

Torres, who faces Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, admitted that he offered Morata his number and told him that he could call him whenever he wanted for advice on the English game.

"I spoke with (Morata) before he joined Chelsea and told him I would always be on the phone if he needed any advice or if I could help him," Torres said, as quoted by The Mirror.

“Looking at the start he has made it doesn’t look like he needs any advice at all - already he is playing well and scoring goals.

"Chelsea has one of the best strikers in Europe - and I am sure he is going to win trophies with them."
