Morata is due to jet off with Real on their pre-season tour of America but the Premier League champions are reportedly readying an offer of €80m for the player.
Striking a deal with Real could be the only difficulty, especially given Manchester United struggled to come to terms with the Champions League holders over a potential deal.
Chelsea have previously attempted to sign Morata and the player is keen to link up with Conte.
Here is what the 24-year-old has previously said about a move away from the Spanish capital.
On working under Antonio Conte…
“Conte is the manager who most ‘bet’ on me, without even ever having had me in his team. I’m very conscious of that: he bet on me for Juventus but left before I arrived; then he wanted me at Chelsea come what may. He knows me better than I could imagine, I’m sure, and that’s important: it motivates you to work hard, train well.
“I feel indebted to him because he’s the coach that most trusted in me, most wanted me, who made me feel I could perform at the highest level. And yet I’ve never had the fortune to actually work with him. I’m sure sooner or later I will.
“The future excites me, whether that’s Madrid or somewhere else. I still have to learn, improve. I can do a lot but I need to play more and for someone to really back me. Either I take off or I end up in a position of comfort, playing games occasionally. I’m no longer the youngest, I’m 24, it’s a big moment.”
On a potential Premier League move…
“Various Premier League coaches called to tell me to play for them. I said yeah, I’d like to, that if I had to leave I would almost certainly go to London, but that I didn’t know what Madrid would do. I knew they’d bring me back but I didn’t know if it was to keep me or sell me.
“I spoke directly to Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte, although the norm is clubs call my dad or agent. Madrid said they didn’t want to sell, so here I am.”
On a previous offer from Chelsea…
“Chelsea showed the most interest.
“And it was a very good offer this time. I would have been the most expensive Spanish player ever.”
On if another offer from the Premier League comes his way…
“But if an offer like that came again and they want to sell, I shouldn’t close doors. I loved Italy but if one day I have to leave, I’m sure it will be to the Premier League.”
On a move to England after Euro 2016…
“There are some tempting offers from England, but not just for the [big] contracts. I believe that for my style of play the Premier League would be a great destination.
“I am not saying I want to leave Juventus – I can only speak well of that team. I am saying that going to the Premier League would not be a step back, just the opposite. With what I have learned in Italy, if I have a chance to learn more in England, it would make me a better player.
“I am 23 and what I want is to progress, to play, to learn from the best and to have a good career.”
On his role at Real Madrid last season…
“I’d like to play in every game, like everybody else. You always want to contribute wherever you are.
“I always want to go out and score, but there are times when you can’t.
“Playing less than I hoped? Sure, but I’m always ready for when the coach needs me and that’s the important thing.”
On making a big decision in the summer…
“I don’t know, it doesn’t depend only on me.
“I’m happy here, it’s my dream to be here, we’ve just won the Champions League and I’m not thinking about anything other than celebrating.
“The only thing I’ve done is play, train and enjoy things with my team-mates and it doesn’t depend on me.
“To return to Madrid and win the Champions League is incredible.
“We have matches with the national team. After that, we’ll see.
“It’ll be a beautiful summer: I’m getting married and I’ve won two trophies.”
What his agent has said…
“Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role.
“He wants to play more. Which is normal for an attacker who has scored 19 goals. It is too little.
“I do not know [if he will stay at Madrid]. This has been a brilliant for Real Madrid who have won many titles.
“The player will take a clear and definitive decision in the coming days. I have not yet met with the representatives from Real Madrid.
“That is what Alvaro wants. He does not want to do a season like this again. It was a great season, but he wants to play more.”
