If everything goes to plan, Morata will be confirmed as a Chelsea player in the coming days and he has admitted that he is excited about the prospect of working with head coach Antonio Conte .
The 24-year-old told Sky Sports News : “This is the best club. Antonio Conte is one of the best coaches in the world and I’m so happy to work with Antonio.
