Morata tells Chelsea fans to stop anti-Semitic chant

ALVARO MORATA was rumoured to be destined for Manchester United this summer, to be reunited with Jose Mourinho, but he made it clear he would only leave Real Madrid for Chelsea.

The two strikers will face-off in Sunday's clash at Stamford Bridge.

As a result, Mourinho shifted his focus from Morata to Lukaku and signed the Belgian striker from Everton. I had various offers this summer, not only Chelsea and Manchester United but also from different leagues. "I think it's very hard to see him before the worldwide break (early in October)", Conte on Friday told a press conference ahead of Sunday's English Premier League (EPL) match against Arsenal.

"But if you give him a long distance of games, a longevity of games, I don't think he will be enough".

After missing out on Romelu Lukaku, Blues boss Antonio Conte splashed out over €70M on the 24-year-old Spanish worldwide and he started by explaining to the Daily Mail that; "Zidane wanted me to stay and I was happy in Madrid".

"Despite him being a young player, he has played with Real Madrid and Juventus, in his career he's won a lot, I think he has great experience, great worldwide experience, we are happy to have him in our team". I felt in debt to him.

"By all means, cheer me on, sing my name, sing songs about Chelsea but let's avoid this chant".

"But I spoke with Conte several times - and not only this summer". He signed me for Juventus but left very quickly to manage Italy.

He added: "I watched the game and (Arsenal boss Arsene) Wenger rotated a lot of players, a lot of players rested for the game against us". It was only two months with him but it felt like I'd known him forever. "The fans have been extremely welcoming to me and hopefully we can move forwards together now".

So once again, it seems as if the route to success came through Antonio Conte.
