Conte gave the green-light to Chelsea's bosses to pursue Morata, Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Torino's Andrea Belotti, and now The Blues have gone ahead with a move for 24-year-old Morata.

Now Chelsea have taken the nearly inevitable step of signing the Real Madrid forward with a reported €80 million fee agreed between the Premier League and La Liga champions.

Diego Costa was Chelsea's top scorer en route to glory last season but Conte has decided Morata's combustible worldwide colleague is more trouble than he is worth, freezing him out of his plans this time around.

Romelu Lukaku was said to be the Blues' top target but the Belgian opted to join Manchester United instead.

Alvaro Morata could reportedly be the next player through the exit door after talks between Real and Chelsea reportedly reached an advanced stage, according to Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

Morata will leave Madrid after two spells with his boyhood club and having won two LaLiga titles and two Champions League crowns.

The club's preference is for Morata to stay for at least one more campaign, but if an offer finally comes in meeting Real's 90-million-euro asking price, they won't turn to the market to replace him.

He is the Premier League champions' fourth signing of the summer after Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willy Caballero and Antonio Rudiger.

Morata has struggled for first team action at Real Madrid last season, but is now ready to be relaunched on English football by Antonio Conte next season.

The Spain global spent just one year back at the Santiago Bernabeu after rejoining Real from Juventus in 2016, winning the La Liga and UEFA Champions League titles.

The striker is currently in the United States with the rest of Real Madrid's first-team squad but will now fly to London for a medical to join his Chelsea team-mates in China as soon as possible.
