26-Year-Old Chelsea Loanee Desperate For Permanent Atletico Transfer



Alvaro Morata

Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is desperate for the Spanish club to sign him permanently at the end of his loan spell with the former Champions League finalists.

Alvaro Morata is on loan at Atletico Madrid from Chelsea having joined the Rojiblancos throughout the winter transfer window earlier this year.

The 26-year-old joined Atletico Madrid on loan for 18 months until the end of next season with the option to sign him permanently at the end of his loan deal with the Spanish La Liga outfit.

In a chat with Goal, Alvaro Morata revealed his desire to join Atletico Madrid permanently.

The Spanish international player made it clear that he does not want to go back to Chelsea.

According to him, he was not appreciated during his time at Chelsea.

Morata signed for Chelsea in a then club-record deal of around £60m.

The former Juventus player signed the Spaniard from Real Madrid at the start of last season but he went on to struggle at the club despite making a great start to his Chelsea career.

He scored just 16 Premier League goals in 18 months for Chelsea.

Since his loan move to Atletico Madrid in January, Alvaro Morata scored six goals in 15 appearances for the former Spanish champions.
