Morata Open To The Possibility Of A Third Return To Real Madrid: Chelsea Cannot Afford To Lose Him!

Alvaro Morata has had a dream start to his Chelsea career after scoring 8 goals in 13 matches. The £58 million forward from Real Madrid has hit the ground running and has so far proved himself to be an able replacement for Diego Costa.

Morata has been in red-hot form for club and country after racking up 9 goals and 2 assists  in less than 20 appearances this season. Prior to his injury, he followed his weekend hat-trick against Stoke with a commanding display in Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Atletico bagging a goal in the process.

Morata started again over the same ill-fated weekend against City and limped off in the 35th minute clutching his left hamstring. In what was considered to be the biggest match of the premier league for Chelsea until that point off the season, Chelsea were by far the second best and Morata’s injury did not help their cause as Chelsea were clearly struggling to initiate attacks without a target-man.

His injury has shown how sorely Chelsea miss him as they have had frustrating results ever since the injury of the Spaniard. Morata’s return was capped off with a brilliant performance for the Blues in their deserving 1-0 win over Manchester United last weekend.

According to recent reports, the ex-Real Madrid man has not ruled out the possibility of a third return to the Santiago Bernabeu. His first exit was certainly anonymous with Morata heading for Juventus. The Spaniard played an important hand in the Italian side’s league titles and was expected to spearhead attacks for Real when he returned to the club. However, Morata has had to play second-fiddle to Benzema at Real and that led to his second exit from the club this summer.

Morata however, remains keen on a third possible return.

“Of course I would return to Real Madrid, but it’s complicated,” Morata told the radio’s main football programme El Larguero.

“I told the coach I wanted to play more. That I wanted to go is foolishness. I felt important for Madrid, but I wanted to play in the Champions League knockout stages.

“I’ve never said a bad word of Madrid nor will I say it. Always I wish them the best. I’m a fan of Madrid but a Chelsea player.”

Chelsea’s lack of options up front coupled with Conte’s lack of willingness to bank on Batshuyai for the big matches clearly shows their dependency on the 25-year old Spanish forward and the Blues will be hoping that Morata‘s desire to return to Madrid is not serious.
