Forget Lukaku – Madrid hero tell president he want to play for Chelsea next season – this will delight fans

Alvaro Morata has reportedly told Real Madrid President Florentino Perez that he wants to quit the club, asking him to facilitate Hus transfer to Chelsea, according to report from Daily Star.

The Real Madrid attacker has been heavily linked with a move away from the club as the speculations surrounding his future continues to gain momentum.

The Spanish forward has not featured regularly under Zinedine Zidane as the French boss prefers Cristiano Rinaldo and Karim Benzema in attack, and it appears Morata has made his final appearance for the La Liga champions in their Champions League final win on June 3rd.

Spanish outlet Diario Gol reported that the striker is keen on moving to the Premier League champions and has claimed he will make a decision about his future this summer.

“I don’t know, it doesn’t depend only on me,” said Morata when asked about his future.

“I’m happy here, it’s my dream to be here, we’ve just won the Champions League and I’m not thinking about anything other than celebrating.

“The only thing I’ve done is play, train and enjoy things with my team-mates and it doesn’t depend on me.

“To return to Madrid and win the Champions League is incredible. We have matches with the national team. After that, we’ll see. It’ll be a beautiful summer: I’m getting married and I’ve won two trophies.”

AC Milan and Man United are also said to be interested in his services but it is clear he wants a reunion with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

He returned to the Santiago Bernabeu from Juventus last summer and has won the La Liga and the Champions League as Real Madrid became the first club to retain the European trophy.
