Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata admits he could leave club soon

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is struggling to adapt to his new life in London. The Spaniard has said life in the city is “stressful”, and it is believed he could leave the West London club soon.

Alvaro Morata considering his options

Morata has taken to life in the Premier League well. The striker has tallied six goals and three assists in nine matches. His presence in the Chelsea starting XI has made the club’s decision to sell Diego Costa more acceptable than it could have been.

Although his life on the pitch has been great, it is life away from the game that hasn’t been up to his standards. Morata recent spoke to Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport, and confessed things aren’t so great in London.

“I live in downtown Chelsea. London fascinates me with its multi-ethnicity, the co-existence of cultures and religions, but I do not see myself living here for very long,” Morata said. “Too much, too much stress, too many metropolises.”

Alvaro Morata regrets Italy exit

Morata also spoke to the Italian newspaper about his exit from former club Juventus. Morata played two seasons with the Bianconeri before returning to Real Madrid in July 2017.

“Italy for a Spaniard is the best country to live. You have everything: beauty, history, art, cooking, fashion. I would never have left Italy and Juve.

“The disappointment [of leaving Juventus] was enormous, I found myself back to the starting point. They [Real Madrid] treated me like the guy I was before the two Italian seasons.”

Morata’s words will not come as pleasant to many Chelsea fans. Supporters have already seen Costa leave after having a tense relationship with manager Antonio Conte.
