  • Chelsea transfer has been 'on a long stand-by', and player's comments help launch it again

When pressed about Morata and his season so far, Hazard told Spanish paper Marca: "Yes, he's very happy".

A frustrated Antonio Conte revealed on Friday that his talisman will be lucky to play again this term as a niggling back injury persists with the Spanish worldwide.

Alvaro Morata's wife Alice Campello has landed herself in it after posting a dance video featuring the injured Chelsea star, who is supposedly nursing a back injury likely to keep him "out for the season".

Morata hasn't featured since Chelsea's FA Cup third round tie against Norwich City on January 17, with the Spanish worldwide due to miss Monday's encounter with West Brom.




Chelsea fans will not be happy to hear their star striker talking up Real, with the goalscorer now unavailable for selection. However, now with rumors about the Spaniard being out for the rest of the season have been confirmed by Antonio Conte and it looks like Morata's luck has gone from bad to worse.

Chelsea FC will take on FC Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League later this month. I am a bit anxious as we know the importance of the player. I don't know [when he will return] because he has this problem.

In his press conference on Friday, Conte: 'He has this problem, we are trying to find a solution to solve the pain in his back. Some lashed him on the premise that he cost the club a whopping £70 million to sign from Real Madrid during the last summer. For this season, I am a bit anxious.

"He is a very important for us but has been missing for a long period of time. But Madrid is always Madrid", said the striker to Espacio Reservado.
