Antonio Conte would sanction the sale of Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid if he gets to sign Alvaro Morata in exchange, according to The Sun.

The La Liga giants have made the Belgium International their top priority for the summer transfer window. The goalkeeper has expressed that he is keen to return to the Spanish capital and Chelsea might not be able to prohibit the move.

Should this be the case, the Blues boss will be looking to snap up Morata in exchange. Conte was responsible for bringing the talented striker to Juventus back in 2014.

The ex-Italy manager is understood to be incredibly fond of the Spanish forward and sees him as an ideal replacement for Diego Costa should he leave in the summer.

Since joining Real Madrid, Morata has struggled with playing time under Zinedine Zidane and netted only five goals, less than centre-back Sergio Ramos this season.

It is likely that the Champions League holders would be willing to let him go in exchange for Courtois.
