Antonio Conte finally reveals: “This is when Alvaro Morata will make his Chelsea debut”

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed that he intends to hand Alvaro Morata his Chelsea debut in Tuesday afternoon’s friendly meeting with Bayern Munich.

The 24-year-old completed a club-record switch to the Blues from Real Madrid on Friday, before immediately jetting off to the Far East to link up with his new teammates.

Morata has only spent a day in the Chelsea camp but will play a part against German champions Bayern in Singapore, though Conte is reluctant to use the Spain international from the off.

“It is my plan to give him the possibility to play a part of the game, for sure,” he told reporters. “Not from the start, he arrived only yesterday. But I want to give him an opportunity to play part of the game.

“He is a young player but he has a lot of experience. He played for two big teams, he played games in the Champions League. I think he can have a good impact in the Premier League. Morata is ready to have a good impact in Premier League.”

Morata netted 20 times for Real Madrid in all competitions last season, boasting a better goals-per-game ratio in La Liga than any player other than Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
