Alvaro Morata is reportedly keen on sealing a transfer to Chelsea this summer, but the move could be complicated by Blues manager Antonio Conte.
Both players have been repeatedly linked with Real in recent times, but Chelsea are understandably desperate to hold on to them.The Italian tactician is determined not to negotiate with the Spanish giants if they try to offer Morata to them in exchanges involving either Eden Hazard of Thibaut Courtois.

Diego Costa’s situation at Stamford Bridge is said to be uncertain, and his fellow Spaniards would make an ideal replacement up front.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Morata himself is ready to make the switch to west London, but Conte won’t do a deal that risks losing any of his stars.
The report adds that Hazard looks set to be offered a new contract with a significant pay rise to fight off Real’s interest.
