Will Alvaro Morata flop at Chelsea next season?

Will Alvaro Morata flop at Chelsea next season?

After all the fuss, Chelsea finally landed Morata. Some time ago, Man United were the favorites to get Alvaro Morata, but Mourinho swerved the steering wheel and landed at Lukaku who was previously a Chelsea target. So it is fair to say it is a footballing trade by barter, or better still – Chelsea and Man United exchanged seats on the dining table!

That Chelsea were in the market moving from store to store, examining the strikers on the counter doesn’t come as very surprising. The handwritings in the wall needed no genius Daniel to interpret them. Diego Costa’s days were numbered in London. Right from when the wind from China started to sway his eyes, culminating to the bust up with Chelsea coach Antonio, it was already likely Costa was already moving his luggage to the garage out of Stamford Bridge.

On the other hand, Morata was getting intensely uncomfortable in Madrid. The Santiago Bernabeu bench looks set to lose a pair of Spanish bottoms which kept the dust off them. Morata largely clamored for more game time. But looking at the sophisticated forward line of the Madrid BBC trident (Benzema, Bale, and Cristiano), there was almost no room for Morata to lodge on the field of play. Yet whenever Zidane called on him, he sure represented himself as a steamy pot of delicious goals. Even in a bit part role last season, Morata managed to scoop 19 goals. When logic is sprinkled into the situation, it gets more effervescent and disturbing. Did Morata deserve more?
The statistics show that last season, Morata had more goals-per-minute than any member of the BBC. Morata averaged a goal every 104 minutes followed Ronaldo at 119, Benzema lagged at 149 while Bale tailed off at 173. This was a solid exhibit for the judge Zidane to extradite one of the BBC off the pitch and get Morata in. But this wasn’t the case. This was even worse considering that Zidane had promised Morata game time to lure him from Juventus back to Madrid. So it was a situation of Zidane breaking a gentleman’s agreement and flinging off his promise to Morata like a burning shirt. And with the World Cup approaching, Morata had to jump boat else he drowned.

 

Now with Chelsea, the premiership is a different footballing terrain. Would Morata bring a heavy downpour of goals to Stamford Bridge? Would he rather bring a drought? Many Chelsea fans have their hands scratching their heads like they are searching for diamond in their hair, pondering if the £70 million Chelsea forked out would turn out good business. Not all importation of players from players from foreign leagues ended up successfully. A good number of them ended up contraband goods that were quickly dispatched by burly premier league defenders. We had the likes of Janssen for Tottenham and Depay for Man United. Both were kings in their previous kingdom but were given no red carpet arrival in the league. Would Morata justify the heavy money on his head and hefty hopes of the Chelsea faithful?

The purchase doesn’t really look like buying a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle for a million dollars. It seems more promising. Morata has proven himself on the big stage, he has scored crucial goals in the Champions league, he is skillful, and has a sharp nose for goal as shown in his apt positioning. He is more of an upgrade on the fiery Costa who scored more fights than goals last season!

Actually my previous comment was supposed to have had a no star review,not 3.My error. There has now been a follow up to earlier events.Sport Pesa are refusing to give my original £10 deposit back. They tell me I must deposit more money from another source,then make a withdrawal of all cash back to this new card/source.Well considering what they have already done,ie:refused my original £10 bet placement,and then not allowed me to get my money back,I will not be falling for this con again. As a previous reviewer said,they are crooks.They are new to this business,and want to be up there with the big boys.But if this is the way they treat new customers I do not expect them to be around for too long. I urge all potential new customers to hit them where it hurts,in the pocket.Avoid them.

Opened an account 2 days ago.Just made my first deposit of £10 and placed a £10 football treble.Immediately got a message saying that i was a "restricted customer." Spoke on live chat to "Flavio" who informed that this was a business decision, and that £10 was too large a bet for me to place.He never said an amount,but told me the bet had to be smaller than £10......WHAT!!! - First of all i thought he was joking,then soon realised he wasn't.Informed him that i had never heard anything so ridiculous,and would withdrawal my £10 back to my card,and place the exact same bet with Skybet.........which i have now done.If they came back to me and now offered me 10 free bets to continue with them i would decline.......I WILL NEVER USE THEM AGAIN.
