Real Madrid’s Spanish forward Alvaro Morata has told that he wants to join Chelsea next season according to various reports.
The 24 year old prolific striker broke the news to his pals after confirming that he would prefer a move to Chelsea over Arsenal.
The £50 million-rated ex-Juventus striker is on Antonio Conte’s radar as the Italian looks to find a replacement for Diego Costa whose future at the club seems uncertain.
Alvaro Morata is finding it hard to feature regularly for the Los Blancos and is now in search of a new club to aspire his dreams.
The Blues failed in their bid to sign him last summer, with Real demanding £67 million for the Spanish star at the time.
But the deal will only come through if Chelsea allow Thibaut Courtois to make a switch at the other end.
Zinedine Zidane will be more than happy to replace a want-away player with someone else.
Morata’s arrival could end Diego Costa’s spell at Chelsea and it is believed that he has reached a £30m-a-year pre-arrangement to move to China.
Alvaro Morata missed the opportunity to work under Antonio Conte as he signed for Juventus just days after the Italian had resigned.
He won three Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia’s in Turin before Real triggered a buy-back clause in his contract to bring him back to the club he started at.
Morata has scored ten goals for Real this season but cannot break into the team ahead of Karim Benzema.
