Alvaro Morata has not shown any signs of discontent early in his Chelsea career, but he has now admitted that London would not be his, nor his wife’s, ideal place to live.
The Spaniard has found the back of the net six times in his first eight appearances in the Premier League. He has wasted no time in beginning to repay the club-record fee that Chelsea forked out to secure his services – £70M, as per the Metro.
However, despite how happy he has looked being given the starting role he craved at Real Madrid, Morata has admitted that life in London is by no means perfect, and in an ideal world neither he or his wife would be living there.
Morata is quoted by the Metro waxing lyrical about life in Italy:
“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.”
He went on to add that it was Antonio Conte who enticed him to SW6, but that doesn’t mean that he necessarily wants to live in England’s capital city, as the Metro report:
“I came here because there was a coach like Antonio Conte. We started talking about my eventual transfer last spring and I finally came to London. Very. My wife would like to live in Spain, I in Italy. Here, we can find a compromise.”
