Alvaro Morata: Real Madrid rejected €70M Chelsea offer for me

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata admits Chelsea pushed hard to sign him over the summer.

Morata was a target for Chelsea after Real Madrid had bought him back from Juventus, Antonio Conte having been their Coach at the time of the striker's arrival in Turin

Chelsea showed the most interest in signing me," he told BILD.

Antonio Conte had already signed me for Juventus and it would have been a very good offer this time – I would have been the most expensive Spanish player ever.

“They offered roughly €70m, but Real Madrid said they had me in their plans and that was always my dream."
