Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata reveals he did receive an offer from Manchester United during the transfer window.
The Spain international departed ways with Real Madrid and completed a move to the Blues in the off-season.
The-24-year-old confirmed that the Red Devils were one of many teams interested in his services.
"I had various offers this summer, not only Chelsea and Manchester United but also from different leagues," Morata told the Daily Mail.
"It was a good situation for me.
"The most important and best conversation I had was with Conte, he wanted me to come here.
"At the start of the summer, I didn't know that Chelsea were interested in me. I thought they were in for a different player, maybe [Romelu] Lukaku or maybe someone else, I don't know. I didn't think the option of Chelsea was open.
