Having beaten Southampton to take the gap at the top of the Premier League to seven points on Tuesday night, Antonio Conte’s Chelsea look well on their way to a first title in English football for the Italian boss.
With that in mind, it seems as if the Blues boss is looking ahead to next season and is preparing to bolster his squad for the inevitable return of Champions League football to Stamford Bridge.
According to reports from Spanish newspaper El Confidencial Conte is prepared to do all he can to land a deal for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, amid concerns that this could be top scorer Diego Costa’s last season in west London.
Furthermore, his movements on the striker will be hastened after reports claiming that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, who worked with Morata in Spain, has called his former employers to assess the situation surrounding the 24-year-old.
Morata looks set to be on the move this summer having fallen down the pecking order under manager Zinedine Zidane.
