Alvaro Morata could be set for premature Chelsea departure in £55M deal

Alvaro Morata could be set for premature Chelsea departure in £55M deal

Yet Huddersfield were the toast of the league after the side who returned to the top division last season ensured survival with a second backs-to-the-wall effort after earning a draw at Manchester City on Sunday.

"The situation wasn't in our hands and for sure the possibility is less than before", Conte said.

Since arriving at Chelsea from La Liga giants Real Madrid for a club record fee of £60 million, Alvaro Morata has not hit the ground running.

Antonio Conte could be set for his final Chelsea game at Stamford Bridge, which also happens to be the club's 500th Premier League home match.

Juve, though, have made a striker their top priority in the summer as they expect Mario Mandzukic to leave.

Pressed on links with Juventus, Conte added: "I don't like to comment on speculation". Morata had a good relationship with Max Allegri, but there is no guarantee he will still be there next season, with Arsenal interested in hiring him. Your [the press] focus is only Morata, but I would like it if your focus was for the whole team.

Chelsea are now fifth in the Premier League table, and sit two points behind London neighbours Tottenham, with a further three points behind Liverpool who they defeated last season.

The draw makes their chances of reaching the European competition very slim and fans were understandably disappointed with the result on social media, however, it was the performance of one of their players that frustrated them more than anything else. It can clinch safety with a win or draw, though in its last match against Chelsea, Huddersfield was defeated 3-1.
