Alvaro Morata has made contact with Real Madrid star urging him to join him at Chelsea


Alvaro Morata has told Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio to accept an offer from Chelsea, the Daily Star has claimed.

It seems Real Madrid want to use the 22-year-old Spaniard as part of the deal which would see Eden Hazard move in the opposite direction.

Hazard was again one of the best players for Antonio Conte as he kept his cool to score the penalty allowing the Blues to lift the FA Cup.

But his future remains uncertain.

Manchester City are also rumoured to be interested in Hazard.

The Belgium international wants to feature in next season's Champions League and might decide to leave Stamford Bridge after Chelsea failed to qualify for Europe's most prestigious competition.

Asensio is expected to feature this weekend when Real Madrid take on Liverpool in the Champions League final.
