Has to grow up
Alvaro Morata has claimed he is happy to be joining Chelsea, who are a club that have always shown an interest in him according to the player himself.
He was speaking after a fee was finally agreed with Real Madrid and the Blues, and seems to be looking forward to a new challenge where he will be a key player for the club, and someone the fans look to when the chips are down and the team need a goal.
While he was good for Real Madrid, it was always clear there were other players the fans looked to – and the same is true of the manager Zidane.
“I am very happy, God willing, tomorrow I will be at Chelsea, a club that has always wanted me,” Morata told Marca.
“I’m not disappointed about anything, I’ve won four titles here [with Real Madrid], but now I only think of putting on the Chelsea shirt.
“I want to grow up, if I didn’t I wouldn’t have left. I’d like to thank Zidane and wish him luck for the upcoming season.
“Thanks to all the Madridistas who supported me. I will always wish Madrid the best. The last time I wore this shirt was in Cibeles.”
It will not only be a huge season for Morata to grow up and prove himself, but also for Romelu Lukaku, the man Morata will now be compared to after a summer where they were linked with both clubs for so long.
There are also a host of other forwards in the Premier League who are top class, and there will certainly be a huge race for the Golden Boot next season.
