Alvaro Morata explains why he joined Chelsea instead of Manchester United

The Morata interview isn't free of such boastful fake news either, with Crafton claiming that "this is his first newspaper interview since joining Chelsea", which is only true if we believe that newspapers only exist in England. It's a pity because he was starting to work and to improve his physical conditions.

Morata has talked about the difference, as he sees it, between football in England and Spain/Italy as well as what Conte's tactics are like in person, but in this interview, he also talks a bit about what he's learned in those other leagues and how maybe we shouldn't be surprised that he was able to get the better of Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire having regularly tested himself against the likes of Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci (and Pepe, even).

Chelsea's match with Arsenal is on Sunday near where the attack happened and the club have urged fans to arrive early to the match as security will be heightened for the Premier League clash. I remember I was with my wife after hearing him out conversation and I said "Chelsea are going to win the league this season".

Morata has now confirmed the rumors of Manchester United being interested in him during the transfer window.

A lack of supply from his teammates could be highlighted by Lacazette's fewer shots, although he has been more clinical than Morata, converting 30 per cent of his chances compared to 21 per cent from the Chelsea striker.

He then added that; "But I couldn't stay to be a substitute".

That is the opinion of Sky Sports pundit and Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier.

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

That's because Chelsea soon registered their interest and Morata made his move to Stamford Bridge. When I knew he wanted me this summer, I didn't think twice. "This time Cesar has sorted everything!"

The Blues boss was referring to the threats ahead of Italy's World Cup warm up match with Belgium in 2016, which saw a major police operations across several countries in mainland Europe ahead of the international competition. And that's exactly what happened.
