Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has rejected a big-money transfer to the Chinese Super League.
A Chinese business group is apparently ready to pay Morata a staggering £29.4million a year for five years, totalling £147million, but interest from Chelsea has persuaded him to reject the offer, according to Marca.
The former Juventus striker is keen on a reunion with Antonio Conte who brought him to Turin.
Morata has been playing second-fiddle to Karim Benzema at the Bernabeu but has still managed to score 20 goals this season.
And Chelsea have been linked with a move for Morata as there is still uncertainty over Diego Costa’s future.
