Chelsea ace Alvaro Morata has given his reasons why he would rather stay at Chelsea than return to Real Madrid amidst stories that the White Ballet regret his sale in the summer.

Morata has been reportedly unsettled with life in London, while Real Madrid are struggling with scoring goals in the La Liga and are trailing by eight points to leaders Barcelona. Despite being flattered by stories linking him with a return to Madrid, Morata insists Chelsea is the right step for his footballing career.

“I don’t know if Real Madrid miss me or not, but it’s nice that people say that. “ he told Spanish channel TVE. “I hope [Ronaldo] scores lots of goals at Real Madrid, although I hope he is tired by the time for the World Cup.

“Technically, [England] is not like Spain, but all of the players are very physically strong. The dressing rooms are also smaller that those I’ve been in before and ours is wooden.

“If I had been looking for things like money or a preferred city then I’d have stayed at home, as I had everything.

“But it’s knowing that you have a realistic chance of playing each game if you train well.

“I didn’t play as much last year.”

Real Madrid’s draught in front of goal continued on Saturday when they drew Athletico Madrid at the San Memes Stadium with Ronaldo reportedly leaving in anger. According to Don Balon, the Portuguese star’s fit of anger was directed at Zinedine Zidane and company for letting Morata leave the club in the summer.

Morata in the meantime has become a regular up front under Antonio Conte and has so far scored 10 goals in 19 matches, and has assisted on four more occasions.

He scored the second of a 3-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday.
