Chelsea were linked with a move for Alvaro Morata last summer but Zinedine Zidane decided to keep the striker at Real Madrid.
Morata revealed how Cesar Azpilicueta was annoyed Morata couldn’t join Chelsea last summer because he had already started house-hunting for Morata.
“Last summer it was close. Cesar Azpilicueta was a bit annoyed because he had already started house-hunting for me last summer,” Morata told Daily Mail.
“We’d even got estate agents on board. This time Cesar has sorted everything!
“When I spoke to Conte last summer, I said ‘If I’m going to leave Real Madrid, it will only be for Chelsea’.
“I remember I was with my wife after hearing him out conversation and I said ‘Chelsea are going to win the league this season.’ And that’s exactly what happened. Now we need to repeat it!”
