In Alvaro Morata Chelsea have a phenomenal striker fully capable of filling the void left by Diego Costa.
But it appears the Spaniard hasn’t exactly settled in his new surroundings yet.
Speaking ahead of his first return to Italy since leaving Juventus for Real Madrid in summer 2016, Morata has been reminiscing about his time in Turin.
And it’s pretty clear he misses the place.
Speaking about his return to Madrid in an interview with Gazetta dello Sport, he said: “The disappointment was huge: I went right back to the start.
“I arrived [in Italy] feeling like a boy and I returned feeling like a true player. I should never have left Italy and Juve.
“I really miss Italy. My wife would like to live in Spain; I’d like to live in Italy.”
To add to that bombshell, he also seems fairly certain that his time in Chelsea and in London won’t be long lived.
“I don’t see myself in London for very long. It is too big, too much stress,” Morata added.
Hardly the words Chelsea fans will want to hear from their main source of goals.
Morata has been superb for the Blues since his £58m arrival from Real in the summer, scoring seven times in all competitions and producing three assists to boot.
But this will be a warning sign to Antonio Conte and co.
How do they keep their main man happy when his dream is elsewhere?
