Last time Alvaro Morata and Antonio Conte were seen together was during their Juventus days in 2014. After that, Antonio Conte took up the job of managing the national side of Italy, and in 2016, Real Madrid exercised their buy-back clause with the Bianconeri, making way for Alvaro Morata to return to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The two might get a chance to come together again if Alvaro Morata signs for Chelsea in the coming season. Reportedly, the Spaniard has already made up his mind to leave Real Madrid at the end of this season.
The reason behind the decision is expected to be the amount of time the striker is spending on the bench rather than the pitch. It is also being said Morata has already made the club president Fiorentino Perez clear about his intention.
With the French striker Kylian Mbappe on Real Madrid’s radar for the next season, there might be no change of fate for the 24-year-old Spaniard at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Besides, rumours are that his former coach at Juventus, Antonio Conte, who is currently the man in charge at Chelsea, has promised Morata a guaranteed first team start.
With a possibility of Chelsea striker and fellow Spaniard Diego Costa leaving for China on a mega budget deal at the end of the current season, Alvaro Morata might find himself perfectly fitting the bill at Stamford Bridge.
Alvaro Morata has not been getting enough match time at Real Madrid since his return from Juventus. With Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale up front, there is not really much left for the Spaniard to do.
In fact, Alvaro Morata’s girlfriend has already bought a house in London, ahead of his rumoured move to the Stamford Bridge.
With awesome dribbling and shooting abilities, and an eye for the goal, Alvaro Morata might be the perfect weapon that is missing from Chelsea’s arsenal.
The current Premier League leaders look very keen to bring in the Spaniard, who has a great ability to counter attack and thread in key passes to set up fellow teammates in front of the goal.
Reportedly, Real Madrid has demanded an amount of £34m for the Spanish Forward to move to Chelsea. It will not be a big ask for Chelsea though, as they possess enough cash in their hands having released Oscar last January for £60m to Chinese side Shanghai SPIG.
The fact that a few more compatriots like Cesar Azpilicueta, Cesc Fabregas, and Pedro are already playing for Chelsea, will help Morata to immediately adjust to the new situation.
