Chelsea most expensive signing Alvaro Morata explains why he left his boyhood club Real Madrid for Chelsea this summer and his new experience in London.
The former Real Madrid striker was asked about his experience at London he said It has been a very long and strange summer. The day I signed with Chelsea I travelled around the entire world, from Los Angeles to Singapore and then to London. Now I have to adapt to a new team, with a very tactical manager like Antonio Conte. I can affirm that I’m already adapted and that I want to start to play”,RELATED: Morata set for new challenge in Stamford Bridge
“I knew that Conte wanted my signing. He trusted me in my stage at Juventus but he had to leave the team. When I noticed that he wanted to sign me I didn’t doubt and it was my preference”, “I admit that is a very important amount of money, but I have enough personality to play calm. I have only played two games in the preseason and 15 minutes in the Community Shield, and after missing the penalty, they already want to kill me. It’ something that motivates means makes me work harder every day”,
Morata talked about his first experience in the Premier League.”Being realistic, it’s very difficult to return to Real Madrid. If I return it would be for a higher amount of money and it’s difficult that a team can pay more that €80M for my transfer. I don’t think Chelsea will give me away, although nothing is impossible in life”,

Morata also explained the reasons why he decided to leave Real Madrid,”I think I had to leave Madrid. It was a very tough decision. I knew I was leaving a team that is my home and that is winning everything right now, but it was a personal decision. I had really good teammates at Madrid and they helped me in every moment. I left Real Madrid because I want to triumph in football, I want to do great things and I’m sure that I’m in the best place to do it”,
Chelsea will play Burnley on Saturday at the Stamford Bridge, Morata is expected to make his Premier League debut.
