Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata is reportedly interested in a move to Chelsea, after he has played a lesser role for Madrid this season.

Chelsea were ready to sign the Spaniard last season and Antonio Conte was even ready to part with a huge sum of £60 million for the young forward. The deal didn’t go through as Real Madrid wanted to hold on to their academy product.

However, the forward has grown frustrated with life at the Santiago Bernabeu and is interested in a switch to join Chelsea, according to reports.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Morata himself is ready to make the switch to west London, but Conte won’t do a deal that risks losing any of his stars.

Real Madrid are highly interested in two Chelsea stars – Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois – and Conte is having none of it.
