Alvaro Morata hints at Real Madrid return

Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid for £70.6million last summer, but the Spaniard has hinted he would consider a return to the Bernabeu in an interview to be aired in Spain on Monday.

The striker, who hasn't played for Antonio Conte's side since January 13 after suffering a back injury, is seems open to returning to Madrid for a third spell. Morata has over four years left to run on his current contract at Stamford Bridge but he won't rule out a move back to Santiago Bernabeu. 

On top football chat show 'Espacio Reservado', journalist Julio Maldonado asked the Spain international: "If tomorrow they call you from Madrid, do you go straight back or would you have to think about it?" Morata replied: "I have to respect Chelsea who have made a great effort for me. And I’m very happy here. But Madrid is always Madrid."

The 25-year-old has already been ruled out of Monday's Premier League game against West Brom and Conte is unsure how long he will be without his striker: "You ask me how long he is out, maybe he needs one day, one month, or is out for the season, I don’t know. I am a bit worried as we know the importance of the player."
