Morata closer to Chelsea

It seems that Alvaro Morata next season will play at Stamford Bridge. British media reported that Real Madrid striker is close to joining Chelsea.

The Spanish striker is one of the main targets of Antonio Conte for the summer transfer window after the Italian tactician expects to strengthen the squad.

Although the Blues are the main favorites to win the Premier League title this season, they will need players to compete in the Champions League next season.

Meanwhile, Diego Costa future is uncertain after he has enormous offer from Chinese club. Therefore on top of the Conte transfer list is Morata alongside Everton striker, Romelu Lukaku.

According to Spanish media, Real Madrid has offered new contract to Karim Benzema and this means that Morata still remains an second option in Santiago Bernabeu.

24-year-old returned last summer to Los Blancos after two seasons at Juventus (where he worked with Conte), he joined Real Madrid after they paid the clause that was agreed when he signed for Juventus.

Morata could cost Chelsea around 60 million pounds (70 million euros) and this would be a good business for Real Madrid.

British media, also speculate that already exists agreement between Chelsea and Morata.
