Morata hints at Chelsea exit
Alvaro Morata reportedly unhappy in “stressful” london and says he dosent see himself in Chelsea for too long
In an exclusive interview in Italy , Alvaro Morata has admitted that life in London is ‘stressful’ and he doesn’t see himself in the English capital for too long.
The spanish striker joined Chelsea in the summer from Real Madrid and has settled in quite well scoring 6 times from 9 Premier league appearances.
Morata had previously enjoyed a two-year spell at Italian side Juventus, winning two Serie A titles and reaching the final of the 2015 Champions League.
Conte, who initially signed Morata for Juve before walking out on the Bianconeri in 2014, has made him his undoubted first choice from the off, starting with the Spain international whenever fit.
His partnership with Eden Hazard has also been a major plus point for the champions, the duo noticeably shining in the 2-1 Champions League win over Atletico Madrid.
However, ahead of a return to Italy for Chelsea’s clash with Roma at the Stadio Olimpico, Moratta admitted to La Gazzetta dello Sport that while he considers London a “fascinating” place to live due to its “multi-ethnicity”, he doesn’t see himself living in the city for too long.
“I live in downtown Chelsea”, offered Morata. “What fascinates me about London is its multi-ethnicity, the coexistence of cultures and religions, but I do not see myself living here for very long.
“It’s too big, too much stress, too much of a metropolis.”
Morata, whose wife is Italian, also made clear his regard for former side Juventus, the club whom he claims helped turn him into “a real player”.
Morata has made clear that he wished he had never been called back to the Santiago Bernabeu by Madrid.
“I wish I had never left Juventus,” added Morata. “I went back [to Madrid] because there were contractual agreements that had to be respected, but I was hugely disappointed”
“I went back to square one and they treated me like the child I was before my two years in Italy.”
