Alvaro Morata returned to Real Madrid from Juventus during the transfer window, but has revealed how Chelsea attempted to bring him to the Premier League.

Madrid activated the buy-back option in Morata’s Juve contract, after they had sold him to the Serie A giants two years prior.

There was some suggestion that the European champions were only re-signing Morata in order to sell him on at a profit, with Chelsea heavily linked with his signature.

And Morata confirmed that new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte – his former boss at Juve – was interested in a reunion at Stamford Bridge that he claims would have broken the transfer record for a Spanish player.

“Chelsea showed the most interest,” he told Sport Bild. “Antonio Conte had already signed me for Juventus.

“And it was a very good offer this time. I would have been the most expensive Spanish player ever.

“[But] Real said that they have me in their plans, and that was always a dream of mine.”

Morata has scored twice from six appearances since his return to Santiago Bernabeu.
