Chelsea’s coach, Antonio Conte, wants to sign a Real Madrid player in the upcoming winter’s transfer market. The Italian manager wants a new striker in his team and his desire is Álvaro Morata. Chelsea tried to sign him last summer with a huge offer but finally the Spanish striker decided to stay at Madrid. According to CalcioMercato, the English team will return to try to sign him in the winter’s transfer market.
Álvaro Morata almost signed with Chelsea a few months ago. The Spanish player confirmed in an interview that Chelsea offered €70M in the last summer transfer market. However, Real Madrid said to Morata that they will count with him in the current season and that he was going to be a very important player in the squad.
In this season, Morata is not having too many minutes and nowadays he is not in Zidane’s best line-up. The young striker has scored nine goals in all the competitions and four assists. He has an average of one goal per 121 minutes. Karim Benzema has the same assists and he has scored five more goals than Morata in the current season.
Conte believes Morata would be an ideal candidate to lead his 3-4-3 formation and feels he can turn him into a 20 goals a season striker. The recent argument between Diego Costa and Chelsea’s manager has made that there is still more interest in Morata’s signing.
Zidane has always said that Morata is very important for the team because he needs players with different characteristics in his squad. This is his first year since his adventure in Serie A, where he grew as a player and as a person. He has always confirmed his desire to stay at the Spanish capital because it’s the team that gave him the chance to be a professional.
