Huge blow for Chelsea as Antonio Conte's main summer target rejects move


Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata will not leave the club during the summer transfer window.

A confirmed target for Chelsea, the 23-year-old will be available to manager Zinedine Zidane and will fight for a regular place in the Frenchman's squad.

The Spanish giants have changed their mind after initially planning to exercise their buy-back option to then sell him for a profit.

The Blues have offered more than £50million to secure the services of the striker but their offer was rejected.

According to Marca, president Florentino Perez and manager Zinedine Zidane have changed their mind and opted to keep the youngster at the Santiago Bernabeu.

He is still one of Antonio Conte's main targets for the summer but it is now very unlikely that he will leave Real Madrid.
