Chelsea boss in constant contact with Real Madrid star over transfer – report
Antonio Conte has been in regular contact with Alvaro Morata, according to reports in Spain
Antonio Conte has been in constant contact with Alvaro Morata about a possible transfer to Chelsea for the Real Madrid striker this summer, according to reports in Spain.
MARCA is reporting that the newly-appointed Chelsea boss has been urging the striker to consider a move to Stamford Bridge and has been reassuring him of the role he would have in his team in west London.
The same article claims that Chelsea have already tabled a €60m bid for the striker in the summer transfer window, which appears to have been rejected by Real Madrid.
Morata is back at Real Madrid after the Spanish club exercised the buy-back option in his contract to bring him back to the Bernabeu following his two-year stay at Juventus.
Conte is thought to be keen to lure Morata to Stamford Bridge and the report in the Spanish publication appears to indicate that a deal remains a possibility.
Chelsea finished in 10th place in the Premier League table last season.
