Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has revealed that returning to Real Madrid in the future is a notion he is open to.
The Spain international left Real Madrid in the summer for Chelsea and has scored seven goals in the League.
Morata insists he is happy at Chelsea, but says returning to Madrid, would be hard for him to refuse.
When asked if he would consider moving back to Madrid in the future, Morata told Cadena SER: “Of course I would go back [to Real Madrid]. After winning everything with Chelsea and making a great career here… well, why not?
“It’s very difficult to say ‘no’ to Real Madrid for a Real Madrid fan like me. But I don’t believe it can happen, honestly, but who knows. I don’t think about it because I’m very happy in London.
“I prefer that they [Madrid] miss me more as a person than as a player. I think they have a good team, Madrid [as a club] is always more important than each player.”
He added: “I appreciate that he told me to stay after returning from Juve. We won La Liga and the Champions League – great titles. I told him I had to fight for my future.
“I played many matches but [only] in the Champions League qualifiers, for 10 minutes. I wanted to leave to be more important. Like next year if I’m doing badly, and I hope not, Chelsea could sell me and I would have to go to a smaller team.
“The easy thing would have been to stay, comfortable [in Madrid] and without the pressure to be a starter. I wish I could have stayed, I did not have a bad time last year as has been said, but I did not play against any top team. I told Zinedine Zidane and he understood me, I am very grateful.”
