An intermediary claims Alvaro Morata chose Chelsea over Milan out of loyalty to Juventus.
Morata was purported to be close to joining Milan, who had gone public with their pursuit of the former Juve striker, but he opted for Chelsea instead.
“Was Morata really close to Milan? The lad didn’t mind the idea,” Beppe Bozzo told Tuttosport.
“But if he chose not to go back to Italy and join Chelsea then it’s also because of the Juventus fans.
“Alvaro was positively surprised by the affection of the Juve fans in Cardiff, and it was because of this that he preferred another solution.
“The good thing is that now he’s being trained by Conte, the Coach he should’ve had in Turin too.
“He’s a great buy: Alvaro’s a talisman, a winner. I’m sure he’ll score a lot of goals and resolve many matches in the Champions League.”
