Conte Claims Morata Was Always Chelsea’s First Choice

Chelsea finally got the main striker they wanted after finalizing Alvaro Moratal’s arrival from Real Madrid and apparently according to The Blues’ boss, Antonio Conte, the Spanish attacker has always been his number one choice.

Previously, there were strong rumors indicating that the Premier League winner’s main target was Romelu Lukaku, who went on to sign with Manchester United instead, but now those reports were squashed by Conte’s statement.

Speaking in a news conference during his team’s preseason preparation, the Italian tactician confirmed their pick regarding Morata while adding that the Spaniard is a good player whose profile fit with Chelsea.

According to Conte, despite still young, his new attacker is already an experienced player who have won many titles and played with top tier clubs such as Real Madrid along with Juventus.

Certainly with his age, signing Morata can also be counted as a future investment for The Blues as they look to built a strong side not just to win now but further along the way, at least during the Italian tactician stay at Stamford Bridge.

Although admitting that the transfer fee to acquire the 24-year-old is enormous,  Conte stated that his team have no other way of avoiding it since that’s how the market goes this days.
