Morata ready to snub Manchester United for reunion with Conte at Chelsea

Cristiano Ronaldo ‘outraged’ and determined to leave Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo ‘outraged’ and determined to leave Real Madrid

"Calciomercato claim Manchester United, Chelsea and Inter Milan are eagerly awaiting Roma's final decision as they consider making offers for the Belgium worldwide".

With United able to offer him a starring role at Old Trafford and seemingly prepared to put him more or less on par with Paul Pogba's reported wages from next season, it seems unlikely they'll be unable to agree terms with Morata himself, if they haven't already. But the Blues have made a late move for the player.

If that wasn't enough to ruin Mourinho's mood, then The Mirror claim that Chelsea are planning to hijack his move for Morata too as a replacement for Diego Costa.

It is understood that Conte tried to sign Morata again for Chelsea last summer.

But the potential arrival of Ronaldo would undermine that message, and could give Morata cause to reconsider his options this summer.

"Various Premier League coaches called to tell me to play for them", he said. I said yeah, I'd like to, that if I had to leave I would nearly certainly go to London, but that I didn't know what Madrid would do.

The former Italy manager knows Blues technical director Michael Emenalo wants to bring Everton hitman Romelu Lukaku, 23, back to the club as further proof that ex-boss Jose Mourinho's instincts were wrong when he sold the Belgian striker in 2014. I spoke directly to Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte, although the norm is clubs call my dad or agent.

Their need is even more pressing after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's departure, with the 35-year-old having netted 17 of those goals. And yet I've never had the fortune to actually work with him.
