Chelsea have been strongly linked with Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, and reports have it that the Spaniard is Conte’s preferred choice.

However, Morata has claimed that he’s yet to receive a call from Conte, while joking that Conte must be calling his old line.

“If Conte is continuing to call me then it will be my old mobile phone because nothing has come to me,” said Morata.

“He won’t have my new number!”

Morata scored a hat-trick in Real Madrid’s 4-2 win over Leganes on Wednesday evening and has insisted he is happy at Real Madrid despite only starting ten league games.

“I feel good at Real Madrid and that is the important thing. I’m getting goals, I feel important and I have to keep it that way.

“I cannot think about next season when we have the most important and hardest part of this season in front of us now.

“The most important thing is that we have won against Leganes. Now we have a difficult schedule and have to win everything possible. That is what we are here for.”
