According to reports from AS, Juventus star Alvaro Morata would prefer a summer transfer to Chelsea or Manchester United over Arsenal or PSG.

The 23-year-old looks set to enter the summer window as one of world football’s most sought-after strikers, with Real Madrid ready to cash-in on the youngster at a huge profit once they activate a £23.7million buy-back clause.

Potential suitors for the Spain international, who is leading the line for his country at Euro 2016, are by no means in short supply with AS documenting interest from Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and PSG.

That’s no great surprise, considering the 6 foot 2 forward has developed a knack of scoring incredibly important goals – including the winner in the final of last season’s Coppa Italia.

But according to the Spanish publication, Morata would much prefer to join Chelsea or United over Arsenal and PSG – because he’s a huge fan of Blues boss Antonio Conte and his predecessor Jose Mourinho, now in charge at Old Trafford.
