Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has distanced himself from comments which insinuated that he does not like London.
He further stated that he would “probably” pen a 10-year deal at Chelsea if possible.
Earlier reports revealed that Morata had told an Italian newspaper that he did not see himself living in London “for very long”.
When asked about the said interview during the pre-match press conference ahead of the game against AS Roma in the UEFA Champions League (UCL), Alvaro Morata said what he said was that he won’t stay in London after he retires.
In his words, Morata said:
“I’m really happy here and enjoying London with my wife.”
“When I finish my career, I prefer to come back to my country. I prefer the place where I was born, that’s normal. When I say London is a stressful city, I’m talking about the traffic and a lot of people. It’s an incredible city.” he added.
Speaking further, the former Juventus and Real Madrid star said:
“If Chelsea proposed 10 years, I’d probably sign it,” he said. “I’m happy with everything. If I make good and improve, I can stay here more than five years.”
