Alvaro Morata was signed during the summer for a record fee, as the Blues paid £60m to bring him from Real Madrid.

The Spain international has revealed that besides Chelsea manager Antonio Conte making contact with him, Chelsea transfer chiefs Marina Granovskaia and Michael Emenalo were in touch to make the club’s intentions clear.

And Morata has admitted that he always wanted to come to Chelsea and he wants to win with the Blues.

“Antonio, Michael, Marina, all of them called me this summer and there was no chance I wasn’t coming to Chelsea,” said Morata of his move to Stamford Bridge.

“They demonstrated to me that they really wanted me.

“I had the chance to go to Manchester United and other teams in the Premier League. The important thing is I’m part of Chelsea and I’m very happy with this and now it’s time to fight for the blue shirt. I want to play well and win with this shirt.”
