The incredible reason one of Chelsea's top transfers could FAIL
Chelsea could well be about to miss out on one of their rumoured top targets and all because of a phone number.
Antonio Conte has been named as a huge fan of Alvaro Morata, and was apparently calling the player weekly, yet according to the Real Madrid star himself, no such contact has been made.
Morata joked that it could be down to his change in phone number – and said if Conte was calling him on his old number, “that’s why I’m not getting it!”
Chelsea have of course been linked with a huge amount of players as you would expect from a club who are at the top of one of the best leagues in the world, so if Morata does decide to go elsewhere or stay at Real Madrid, Chelsea won’t be spoilt for choice.
They’ve also got the option of Romelu Lukaku, and have even been linked with Antoine Griezmann, who is of course one of the very best players in the world.
Either way, the future of Diego Costa is up in the air, with some Chelsea fans actually calling for his sale should he wish to leave the club – but Eden Hazard looks like staying, and of course that’s the vital thing for the Blues.
