Morata has no regrets

9th November 2017, 04:14 by Michael Holland

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata says he has no regrets about leaving Real Madrid and hopes to stay with the Blues for a long time.

Morata left the Bernabeu to head to Stamford Bridge in the summer and has hit the ground running when firing home seven Premier League goals for the Blues.

Even so it has been suggested that Morata regrets leaving Los Blancos, where he won two La Liga titles and as many Champions League titles, something which the player has moved quickly to deny.

The Spaniard is enjoying life at Stamford Bridge and has no plans to go anywhere for a long while.

"I would never regret joining a club a club like Chelsea and hopefully I will be a long time at Chelsea," Morata said. "You should never have regrets in life, all the steps that I have taken in my career have served for something and I have learned from them.

"I won in Italy, I won at Real Madrid and I felt important. Now I have a challenge ahead of me to be champion in Spain, Italy and England.

"None or very few Spaniards have achieved that and that is my goal. To win the Premier League and be the Spaniard that has won in three different countries."
