There’s no Chelsea return on the cards for Alvaro Morata. He appears set on remaining at Atletico Madrid for the foreseeable future.
Morata returned to Madrid in January, with the Spaniard unable to improve his performances under the stewardship of Maurizio Sarri.
He has enjoyed an upturn in form at the Wanda Metropolitano and appears keen on prolonging it. He’s quoted by the Daily Mail saying:
“I want to be here, I’m going to do everything I can to continue playing here.”
“I did everything in my power to come, and I’ll do everything in my power to stay. I do not even consider going to another club. I’m delighted and I think I have to do a lot of things here.”
“I do not have anything else in mind, I would like to be at Atletico Madrid all the years that I have left of my career, to be as important as possible in the future.”
Another mistake from Chelsea?
If you saw Morata play in a Chelsea shirt, you’d probably be well aware of the reasons why the club saw no future for him in blue.
However, his six La Liga goals in the second half of the season have suggested that a revival could be on the cards.
Whether or not Morata is able to develop into a top striker at Atletico is irrelevant, though. The reality is he would never have managed it at Chelsea.
We ought to be happy that a former Blue has managed to turn his fortunes around, but focus on the future rather than dwelling on the past.
