No exit plan for Morata

A return to Real Madrid would interest Alvaro Morata, although he insists a move will only be possible after he has won "everything" at Chelsea.

The striker joined the Blues in the summer but has already been the subject of rumours linking him with a switch back to the Bernabeu.

Morata came through Los Blancos' academy but left for Juventus in 2014, sighting his frustration at a lack of first team opportunities.

After two years in Turin, he re-joined Real in 2016 but again found himself down the pecking order and Chelsea eventually signed him for a reported club record £60million in July.

I don't think about it because I'm very happy in London.

The 25-year-old has hit the ground running, scoring eight times already, including the winner in last weekend's 1-0 win over Manchester United.

He is currently away with the Spanish national team and has inevitably been asked about whether he would one day like to return to Madrid.

Although he says it is a possibility, Morata is adamant any move will only occur once he has helped Chelsea add to their trophy cabinet.

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."

Chelsea are 16/1 to win the Premier League title and 25/1 to claim the Champions League.
