Mourinho Made Transfer Approach For Record Signing Of PL Rivals Chelsea — Confirmed

Q&A with Pat Nevin and Viv Anderson

Q&A with Pat Nevin and Viv Anderson

Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata, has said he wants fans of the club to stop chanting a song in his honour, which includes his anti-Jewish undertone.

Chelsea and United moved to reinforce their striking position in the summer, the Blues were interested in Lukaku, while the Red Devils were keen on Morata.

The 27-year-old Drinkwater joined the London giants from Leicester City on the last day of the summer transfer window and has yet to make his debut with his new club, reports Efe.

"At the moment you might say that Lukaku is the better striker, based on amount of goals scored, but Morata has huge potential". He talks about the pressure of his transfer fee, the pressure of repaying Conte's faith, the pressure, in general, of top level football and especially the pressure on strikers who are almost exclusively judged on how many goals they score and how often, and how his wife helped him through some of the tougher times in Italy.

"I had various offers this summer, not only Chelsea and Manchester United but also from different leagues". It's a pity because he was starting to work and to improve his physical conditions.

Pressed for his opinion on two leading marksmen, former Chelsea defender Le Saux told Betfair: "Alvaro Morata has shone in those two games [against Everton and Leicester], scoring in each". The most important and best conversation I had was with Conte, he wanted me to come here. I am against any songs that will offend people on the basis of religion or race. I thought they were in for a different player, maybe Lukaku or maybe someone else, I don't know.

That's because Chelsea soon registered their interest and Morata made his move to Stamford Bridge.

"I spoke with Conte several times - and not only this summer".

He then added that; "But I couldn't stay to be a substitute". It was only two months with him but it felt like I'd known him forever.

"When I spoke to Conte last summer, I said 'If I'm going to leave Real Madrid, it will only be for Chelsea'".

"Last summer it was close". We'd even got estate agents on board. "This time Cesar has sorted everything!" he admitted. And that's exactly what happened. Lacazette has taken an average of 135.5 minutes to do the same. We need to cut it out.
