CONTE: WE DIDN’T PAY MUCH FOR MORATA

Chelsea signed Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid for a fee worth £60 million and add-ons could take it to £70 million.

Manchester hijacked Chelsea’s bid for target Romelu Lukaku and ended up signing him for £75 million with add-ons taking the deal to £90 million.

In a very expensive transfer window, reports claim Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a £161 million move from Monaco to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to pay £198 million for Barcelona star Neymar.

This has prompted Conte to say Chelsea didn’t spend much on club record signing Alvaro Morata.

“We didn’t pay a lot for Alvaro – only £50-£60m,” said the Chelsea manager. “If you compare him to others, you can see the difference.”
