Before Antonio Conte’s appointment as the manager of Chelsea, coaches like Diego Simeone and Jose Mourinho were very well known for their touch-line drama. But Conte proved that he is not just a dramatic coach but his presence exudes and instills so much confidence in his players.
Little wonder the Chelsea of this season looks rejuvenated. However, Conte may not be able to replicate the success of this season if he doesn’t strengthen his squad because the Blues are going to feature in more competitions next season.
Real Madrid and Spanish striker Alvaro Morata is currently unhappy with life at the Santiago Bernabeu and he has informed the club he is in the want of a move to Stamford Bridge, this report is according to the Express.
After an unsuccessful two-year spell with the Old Lady, Morata returned to Madrid last summer but he has failed to impressed Zinedine Zidane. Dislodging Karim Benzema as the lead attack has being a herculean tax for Morata, who has featured 10 times from the bench in the La Liga this term.
Having worked with Antonio Conte in Juventus, Morata made bare his desire to link up with his former manager at Stamford Bridge and it is believed that Conte is a big admirer of Morata. It was Conte who signed the striker from Real Madrid in the summer of 2014.
Diego Costa’s recent struggles in front of goal means the Blues are on their heels for another striker that can step into his boots next term. Despite being a fringe player and starting only 10 La Liga games, Morata has netted 11 goals in the La Liga this term.
It is believed that Florentino Perez will not settle for a fee less £34m to prise the player away from the Santiago Bernabeu but Chelsea are capable of matching his wage demand.
