Alvaro Morata Says He Could Not Be A Sub At Real Madrid

Morata admitted he was under the impression that the Belgium international would be headed for Stamford Bridge but explained that Conte played a crucial role in ensuring he signed for the Premier League champions, while Lukaku ultimately ending up at Old Trafford.

It's no secret that Jose Mourinho was interested in signing Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, but Manchester United failed to agree a fee with the Spanish clubs.

The song describes supporters of rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who have traditional links to the Jewish community, as "Yids".

'Yes. I had various offers this summer, not only Chelsea and Manchester United but also from different leagues, ' Morata told the Daily Mail.

"I think he scored an amazing goal, the guy was very honest to tell that he tried to cross, but during the game he had other chances to score".

'But I spoke with Conte several times - and not only this summer.

Chelsea's 3-0 loss at Arsenal in September 2016 prompted a change to a 3-4-3 formation and a 13-game winning run which led to the Premier League title triumph in Conte's first season.

Arsenal have endured a more turbulent start to the season, with defeats at Stoke and Liverpool piling pressure on Gunners boss Arsene Wenger. I always wanted to play for him after that. "I also took them today and I will tomorrow, I hope to solve the situation, otherwise... it will be a problem for me".

It was clear that Conte had an issue with both sendings-off, even if most onlookers felt Moses had to go for his dive.

"I remember I was with my wife after hearing him out and I said 'Chelsea are going to win the league this season.' And that's exactly what happened".

Antonio Conte blamed the air conditioning, which is not the sort of line that can be expected to kick off a piece on Chelsea's derby against Arsenal on Sunday.

Morata knows Mourinho well from their time together at Real Madrid and it was the Portuguese coach who handed the striker his first team debut at the European champions. "He needs time to recover", Conte said.

Scott has been given a squad number for the season ahead, too.

Both strikers have began their careers at the different teams with decent goal returns, with Lukaku currently leading the scorers' chart.

But I couldn't stay to be a substitute.
