Chelsea have launched a mega-money move for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, according to Spain's premier radio network La Cadena SER.
The report claims that the west London outfit have made a bid in the region of €75 million for the Spain international.
Morata, 23, only returned to Real Madrid this summer after the Spanish giants triggered their buy-back clause to re-sign him from Italian giants Juventus.

The forward enjoyed a prominent spell for Spain at Euro 2016 and is recognised as one the most exciting young forwards in Europe.
Uncertainty surrounds his long-term future, however, as numerous reports have indicated that Real had only purchased the forward in an attempt to sell him on for a profit.

It appears, then, that Chelsea are the latest club to be credited with an interest in him, but it's far from certain as to whether he will join the ranks at Stamford Bridge before the close of the transfer window.
The west London outfit have already been busy this summer, of course, having landed the duo of Michy Batshuayi and N'Golo Kante.
Kante was one of the leading midfielders in the Premier League last season, while Batshuayi has all the attributes to become a top-class striker.
As it stands, Batshuayi will challenge enigmatic striker Diego Costa for a starting place in Antonio Conte's side next season, but it appears that Morata could yet enter the frame.
The addition of Morata would truly give the Blues an array of attacking talent, but fans of the club won't be getting their hopes up at this stage.
Whether or not the club manage to sign the Real Madrid man remains to be seen, but it's fair to say that there's every chance that Chelsea will once again challenge for the Premier League title next season.
After last term's disaster on the pitch, the club's hierarchy are clearly intent on changing the dynamic of the squad.
And with the likes of Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, John Terry and co. around, it would be foolish to write this Chelsea side off.
