Alvaro Morata finally breaks silence on Chelsea transfer and claims Conte is calling him


Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has joked that Antonio Conte must be calling his old phone number as he is unaware of any interest from the Chelsea manager.

Morata has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer with Chelsea looking to spend big on finding a new strike force in the summer.

With Diego Costa’s uncertain future at the club, likes of Morata, Romelu Lukaku, and Andrea Belotti have been lined up as the possible signings.

Morata addressed the transfer rumours for the first time and said: ‘If Conte is continuing to call me then it will be my old mobile phone because nothing has come to me.

‘He won’t have my new number!’

Morata continued and claimed his happiness at getting regular goals for the Blues and vowed to stay on at Real Madrid to fight for his place in the starting XI.

Morata said: ‘I feel good at Real Madrid and that is the important thing. I’m getting goals, I feel important and I have to keep it that way.

‘I cannot think about next season when we have the most important and hardest part of this season in front of us now.

‘The most important thing is that we have won against Leganes. Now we have a difficult schedule and have to win everything possible. That is what we are here for.’
