Alvaro Morata was linked with a move to Manchester United before joining Chelsea for a club record fee of £70 million and the striker has revealed Chelsea was his preferred move because he knew Chelsea boss Antonio Conte loved him.
“I knew Conte loved me,” Morata told Marca.
“I had talked to him many times. In a way, I felt indebted to him because I signed for Juventus and he had to go.
“Actually, at first I did not realise I was so interested in signing, but when I found out about their interest I did not hesitate. It was my preferred move.”
