Chelsea complete signing of Morata

Premier League champions Chelsea completed the signing of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata on a five-year-deal on Friday in a deal reported to be worth up to €80 million.

"I am so happy to be here. It’s an incredible emotion to be part of this big club. I am looking to work hard, score as many goals as I can and to win as many trophies as possible," the 24-year-old told Chelsea's club website.

Morata put pen to paper with the London giants after undergoing a medical and he is now expected to link up with his new teammates, who are preparing to play Arsenal in a pre-season friendly in Beijing on Saturday.

He could make his debut against Bayern Munich in Singapore next Tuesday.

Morata, who scored 20 goals in 43 appearances for Real last season on their way to the Champions League and Spanish title, also has nine goals in 20 appearances for Spain – including three at last year’s European Championship.
Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo said Morata can make a huge impact domestically as well as in the Champions League.

"We are delighted to complete Alvaro’s signing and welcome him to the club. We believe he can make a great impact for Chelsea and look forward to seeing him in action," said Emenalo.

"Alvaro has proven class at the highest level and his quality will be a huge asset to Antonio and the squad."

Earlier on Friday, Chelsea coach Antonio Conte marvelled at the "crazy" transfer fees demanded for players, though he praised Morata as a young but experienced striker with a bright future.

"He's a good striker. He's a player with the right prospect for Chelsea. He's very young and for sure he can improve a lot," Conte told a press conference on the eve of the game against Arsenal.

Chelsea had long been linked to a move for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, but they signed Morata after the Belgian international joined Manchester United instead for a reported €85 million.

Asked whether the price paid for Morata was fair after he had previously warned about the spending power of Chinese clubs, Conte acknowledged that "for sure this transfer market is crazy".

"I think if you want to buy a simple player, okay, a normal player, you have to start to think to spend 40-50 million euros, and I think this is incredible," he said. I

Nigerian comedian,I Go Dye has reacted to Federal Government plan to ban film production abroad

Nigerian comedian, I Go Dye, has reacted to Federal Government's plan to ban the production of movies and music videos abroad.

I Go Dye who proposed ways the Nigerian Government can achieve their plan so no one cries of foul play, also asked relevant questions in his post. Here's what he wrote;

"Undoubtedly,entertainment: Music,Comedy,Sport, and Film productions are the highest-ranking human resource export from Nigeria.Government should protect their intellectual property and invest into its capacity building.

I have observed with keen interest the recent reports credited to the honourable minister of information and culture,proposing to ban the production of our indigenous films abroad.instead of such pronouncements,I expect a mutual partnership with government and all stake holders in the entertainments industry.what level of support has government provided to growth of entertainment in terms of protecting their works?

Piracy is still on the high,most of the actors,actresses and producers do not earn what's is obtainable in other parts of the world in terms of technical,social support and general contribution to their well being.I recommend that instead of putting laws to check the issue of films produced outside Nigeria.

Government should invest in the sector to develop it,introduce partnership that will bring about government earning funds from the services provided through technical equipment, logistic sites, and establishment of a standard Nollywood village.

Finally,soft loans should be provided to aid film production ,while the ministry of information and culture should engage the film writer and producers to build contents that can significantly profile our image as a country.instead of confrontation,which will not be in the best interest of both the government and the artistes."

Blues' Conte signs new two-year dea

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has signed a new two-year contract with the Premier League champions, saying they must work even harder this season to remain the top club in the country.

The deal does not extend the Italian's commitment to the club because he signed a three-year deal when he joined in 2016, but British media reported he has been given improved terms.

"I am very happy to have signed a new contract with Chelsea. We worked extremely hard in our first year to achieve something amazing, which I am very proud of. Now we must work even harder to stay at the top," 47-year-old Italian Conte said.

Conte, who managed Italy at Euro 2016, led Chelsea to the league title at his first attempt last term and they reached the FA Cup final which they lost to London rivals Arsenal.

The new contract will come as a relief to Chelsea fans after Conte was reported to be frustrated by the club missing out on Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku, who was signed by Manchester United last week for £75 million.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: "Antonio achieved incredible success last season, adapting to English football very quickly and leading us to the Premier League title.

"This new contract reflects our belief that he can continue to deliver results both domestically and as we return to European competition in the Champions League."

Chelsea have signed defender Antonio Rudiger from AS Roma and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco but need a striker with Spain's Diego Costa expected to leave the club having not travelled on their pre-season tour to China and Singapore.

They have been linked with Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but the Bundesliga club said on Tuesday that the 28-year-old Gabon forward would not be leaving.

Chelsea also announced that Conte's compatriots Paolo Vanoli and Davide Mazzotta had joined the west London club as assistant head coach and assistant/player analysis respectively.
