Morata upset about the prospect of returning to Chelsea

Morata is not willing to make a return to the Premier League where he struggled for form, he told AS: "I do not know. There are contracts. My thing is to put myself on the field to play. What is clear is what I want. I want to be here and I will do everything possible to continue playing here.

"I did everything in my power to come and I will do everything in my power to stay here. I do not think of going anywhere. I'm happy here.

"The years that I have left to play at the highest level I want to be here.” 

Morata wishes to continue with his childhood Atletico Madrid club after he found football fun again under Diego Simeone.
