Alvaro Morata says Chelsea made a £60m bid to sign him.
Alvaro Morata reveals that Chelsea made a £60m bid to sign him this summer.
But it was his “dream” to return to Real Madrid.
He said that Antonio Conte signalled his interest in the striker and was really close to a move to Stamford Bridge.
He said playing for Real Madrid is his dream and Zidane told him that he was included in Real’s plans.
Real used a £23 million buy-back option to re-sign Morata after they sold him to Juventus in June 2014 for £17m.
“Chelsea showed the most interest,” Morata told
He revealed that Chelsea was preparing an 70 million Euros transfer for him.
Morata started his Real career in a flying fashion as he scored 2 goal from 5 games.
Real Madrid is now leading La Liga an is three point clear of second place Barcelona.
The 23-year-old will be hoping to recreate the form for Juventus during his time in Turin at Madrid.
