Chelsea had to part with about £60 million to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid this summer, in a deal that could rise to £70m, and the 24-year-old has vowed to repay back the manager’s faith.
The former Real Madrid forward told El Pais: “I’m now with a team that have made a massive financial commitment for a Real Madrid substitute.
“That is the reality of the situation. They have given me everything. Conte is with me to the death, the supporters are with me to the death, the club is with me to the death that is why I have to make a big impact and really make my presence felt.
“Destiny has given me this chance. It’s true that I have played some very good games and I’ve won points and helped win leagues but you don’t expect to a player to score important goals or put in important performances once in a while. Football is all about consistency.”
He added: “Chelsea have made a huge financial effort to sign me. Antonio Conte, the club and the fans all back me to the end.
“I have to make a big impression for them. All I want to prove my worth is the chance to play in five consecutive games.
“I was never able to do this at Real Madrid.”
