Alvaro Morata says he will work with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte “sooner or later” and his next move will be to the Premier League.
The Real Madrid striker revealed he was the subject of a £60m bid from Chelsea last summer and spoke to Conte about a move to Stamford Bridge prior to his return to the Spanish giants following a spell at Juventus.
Morata, who went on to score 27 goals in 93 appearances for Juve, has admitted he still owes a debt of service to the now Chelsea head coach.
“I’m very happy at Madrid and they support me,” Morata told the Guardian. “But if an offer like that came again and they want to sell, I shouldn’t close doors. I loved Italy but if one day I have to leave, I’m sure it will be to the Premier League.
“I feel indebted to him because he’s the coach that most trusted in me, most wanted me, who made me feel I could perform at the highest level. And yet I’ve never had the fortune to actually work with him. I’m sure sooner or later I will.”
