Man Utd target Morata gets married in Venice

19 June 2017

Chelsea have been linked with a move for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku as well, but Conte's preference is thought to be Morata.

Chelsea are being tipped to launch a last gasp attempt to hijack Manchester United's proposed £60m move for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, according to a report in the Express.

Zinedine Zidane has made it clear that he doesn't want to see Morata move anywhere but has conceded that no guarantees can be made over Morata receiving greater amounts of game time next season ahead of the World Cup - the main priority for the Spaniard at this given time.

The Spanish global has been strongly linked with a move to Man Utd with Spanish outlet AS reporting earlier this week that Morata's agent was at the Bernabeu speaking with Madrid officials about a possible move to Old Trafford.

And, if United or Milan get their way, Morata could soon be making another announcement...

United are still considered favourites to sign Morata as they look to secure a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"There will be a last attempt by Chelsea for Morata because Conte is desperate for Morata".

Antonio Conte, manager of the Premier League champions, signed Morata for Juventus in 2014 but left before he arrived.

It seems as though Chelsea are ready to throw a spanner in the works though if Ronaldo is keen on a return to England, with Abramovich ready to dig deep into his pockets to make a deal happen.

Mourinho's club have identified Alexandre Lacazette as an ideal alternative to Morata if a deal is to fail for the Spanish worldwide.
