Has Alvaro Morata dropped the biggest hint yet that he will be joining Chelsea?


Striker Alvaro Morata has revealed that he wants to stay at Juventus but also that his future depends on what Real Madrid want to do this summer.

The 23-year-old has made it clear that his first option is to enjoy regular football at the Santiago Bernabeu but this seems unlikely since manager Zinedine Zidane will not drop one of his formidable players in the offensive department.

Juventus is Morata's second option but the Bianconeri cannot meet Real Madrid's demands to sign him on a permanent basis.

This leaves Chelsea and Manchester United in the equation but the Blues are strong favourites to sign him after it was confirmed that Antonio Conte has made personal contact to bring the player to Stamford Bridge.

And Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich is ready to pay whatever Real Madrid will ask to make the Spaniard one of Conte's signings this summer.

Meanwhile, the striker himself has all but confirmed that staying at Juventus will be very difficult.

"I have many friends in Turin and it would be a shame to leave," Morata told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Juventus are amongst the best in Europe and the best in Italy.

"I am happy there but unfortunately I cannot say anything about my future, it doesn't depend on me."
