Antonio Conte has warned Alvaro Morata to ignore the speculation about his future and focus on performing for Chelsea FC.

It has been something of a mixed first season for Morata at Chelsea FC following his move to the west London club from Real Madrid last July.

The Spanish striker made a strong start to life at Chelsea FC following his move but his form in the second half of the campaign was hampered by fitness issues.

The 25-year-old forward has scored 11 goals and made six assists in the Premier League for Conte’s men so far this season and will be hoping to help the Blues end the campaign on a high by winning the FA Cup.

Morata has been linked with a surprise return to Juventus in the summer transfer window.

However, Conte has urged the striker to forget about the speculation surrounding his future and instead focus on finishing the season strongly with Chelsea FC.

Speaking at his news conference before Chelsea FC’s clash with Huddersfield on Wednesday night, Conte said: “I don’t like to comment on speculation.

“It is not right and we have to focus on the present and finish the season in the best way.

“He is Chelsea’s player and must be ready to play tomorrow and next season. The situation is very clear.”

Chelsea FC are likely to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the Blues look to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next season.
