''It was a good situation for me. The most important and best conversation I had was with Conte, he wanted me to come here.

''At the start of the summer, I didn’t know that Chelsea were interested in me. I thought they were in for a different player.

''Maybe Lukaku or maybe someone else, I don’t know. I didn’t think the option of Chelsea was open.

''But I spoke with Conte several times – and not only this summer. I felt in debt to him. He signed me for Juventus but left very quickly to manage

''Italy. I always wanted to play for him after that. It was only two months with him but it felt like I’d known him forever.

''When I knew he wanted me this summer, I didn’t think twice. I did everything I could to make the move happen.''

Alvaro Morata was nominated for the Premier League's Player of the Month award for August after scoring two goals and providing two assists in his first three matches.
