Alvaro Morata indicated at his possible departure from Chelsea FC, regardless of his good form on the pitch, conceding the pace of life in London is incurring a significant toll on him.
Since 2016, the former Madrid striker has lived in Turin, Madrid, and London, and it finally appeared as though he had discovered his place in the English capital.
Nonetheless, Morata revealed he regrets leaving Italy and is anxious to return home in the not so distant future.
“I’m fine,” Morata told Italian newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’. “I live in downtown Chelsea. London fascinates me with its multi-ethnicity, the coexistence of cultures and religions, but I do not see myself living here for very long. Too much, too much stress, too many metropolises.”
“Italy for a Spaniard is the best country to live,” said Morata, whose Italian wife relocated to London with him. “You have everything: beauty, history, art, cooking, fashion. I would never have left Italy and Juve,” he acknowledged.
The striker got up to speed quickly in the Premier League but appears to be planning his next move despite only joining Antonio Conte’s team in the summer. It seems his heart is back in Italy: “The disappointment [of leaving Juventus] was enormous, I found myself back to the starting point.”
