Alvaro Morata is relishing the limelight at Chelsea and has no regrets about leaving European champions Real Madrid for Stamford Bridge as he targets Premier League silverware.

Morata enjoyed two spells at boyhood club Madrid, winning two LaLiga titles and as many Champions League crowns among others, but he was unable to cement himself in the starting XI with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema headlining Zinedine Zidane's attacking options.

The 25-year-old Spain international is now flourishing under Antonio Conte at Chelsea – who signed the forward for a reported fee of £70million – with seven goals in the Premier League following his winner against Manchester United last week.

Morata open to Real Madrid return — but not yet .
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has revealed that he is open to returning to former club Real Madrid, from whom he joined the Blues in the last transfer window. Fear not though, the Spanish striker is making no immediate plans to return to his boyhood club just yet — he wants to win masses of silverware at Stamford Bridge first. Speaking to AS (via Evening Standard), the Chelsea striker said: “Of course I’d go back – only after I have won everything with Chelsea and made my mark there,” “It’s very difficult to say no to Madrid when you’re a Madridista. But to be honest, I don’t think it’s going to happen although you never know. It’s not something I am thinking about because I’m happy in London.” Morata left Real Madrid for the second time in his career last summer, to become Chelsea’s record signing — he had previously left the Spanish capital for Juventus before returning to the Santiago Bernabeu last season. He scored 20 goals for Los Blancos in 2016-17 before joining Chelsea for a fee in excess of £50 milllion.
