Report: AC Milan are buying all the strikers, leaving none for Chelsea

However, an end to the saga could soon be in sight.

Pleasing Morata is only half of the battle for Chelsea and Milan, and perhaps the easier part, they'd also have to come up with a fee to please Real Madrid.

Sportsmail takes a look at the candidates who could begin the season as Conte's main man.

Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Monday morning (17 July) that the Rossoneri were nearing an agreement worth €70m (£61.4m, $80.2m) for a player who will be paid €10m-per-year in wages - a figure higher than Chelsea's €9m offer.

But it's a Real Madrid's right to ask for their players the amount of money that they want.

But the closing of the Chinese transfer window means that will now not happen, for now at least, much to the delight of some of Europe's leading clubs.

Although the 21-year-old isn't quite ready yet, United will be happy for him to get vital experience and work hard to rise further.

Llegó a la meta a 10 minutos 19 segundos del ganador, Bauke Mollema , y a 3 minutos 54 segundos del grupo de Froome. Poco a poco vio cómo los demás se iban y él, resignado, pedaleaba con lo poco que tenía.

Cadena Ser also reveal that Alvaro Morata is angry with the way he has been treated by Real Madrid.

"He's intelligent, he's polite, we kept the contact, the feeling and now we are back together in different moments and I have no doubts it is going to work". "David is one of the few keepers who give you points over the course of a season".

"It is a question for Florentino [Perez]".

"Evidently we are still thinking of doing something in that position".

But, Morata remains a Chelsea target according to a number of major sources.

"We know him well from his time with Benfica, and he hasn't found much space at Bayern", Mirabelli added.

The Premier League pulled out of the race to sign Romelu Lukaku instead, with Chelsea then emerging as a potential candidate.
