Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has admitted that his time with Chelsea was not good. The Spaniard joined the Blues during the summer of 2017 whilst the club was managed by Antonio Conte and was brought in as a replacement for Diego Costa who was deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge during the same summer. The 26-year-old initially started off well at Chelsea but he ultimately failed to score goals on a regular basis and was definitely not suited to leading the line for the club. All in all, he went on to score just 16 goals in the Premier League from 47 appearances for the club.
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has insisted that he wishes to remain with Atletico Madrid beyond this summer. The Spaniard was sent on loan to the La Liga club in January after struggling to find form for the Blues during the first half of the season. Since moving to Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Morata’s form and confidence have appeared to have improved as scored six goals and provide one assist during the second half of the campaign.
