According to reports in Spain, Jose Mourinho had been phoning the 24-year-old striker on a near daily basis to convince him that he will be the main man at United.

Chances created - The Chelsea striker narrowly edged the number of opportunities made for teammates, with an average of 1.23 per 90 minutes in the league to Morata's 1.14.

Morata has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United this summer after struggling to cement his place in the Real Madrid first-team since rejoining the club from Juventus.

Manchester United are undoubtedly going to buy a striker this season given Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been released, and Wayne Rooney seems destined to follow his footsteps and leave Old Trafford.

Morata has reportedly agreed terms with United, but Abramovich has given the go ahead to join the battle for his signature.

After it was reported that Antonio Conte text Diego Costa earlier this month to inform him that he no longer needed his services heading into next season, speculation has been rife as to who will replace the commanding forward.

In an interview with The Guardian in April, he said: 'Various Premier League coaches called to tell me to play for them.

'I knew they'd bring me back but I didn't know if it was to keep me or sell me.

They say Ronaldo's Real team-mate Gareth Bale, Barcelona talisman Neymar and Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller are the other three players. He knows me better than I could imagine, I'm sure, and that's important: it motivates you to work hard, train well.
