Alvaro Morata admitted he wanted a move to Serie A

Alvaro Morata has revealed  that he was very much open to the idea of moving back to Italy after he failed to impress last season.
The forward player joined Chelsea from Real Madrid for a big fee but did not live up to expectations despite impressing earlier. Morata was signed by Antonio Conte to replace Diego Costa who was compelled to return to Atletico Madrid after being frozen out of the first team by his club's manager.

Morata has scored 15 times in 46 appearances for the blues. With Chelsea signing Olivier Giroud from Arsenal back in January, Morata lost his position in the starting lineup.

Throughout the summer transfer window, the former Juventus man was linked with a move back to the Serie A sides after growing increasingly frustrated.
Morata told reporters upon his return to the Spanish national side for their UEFA Nations League games against England and Croatia: It was a big challenge last year, I did not know where I was, I was not glad. Not playing in the World Cup was difficult for me. I did not have the best season and the coach made the decision. I joined Chelsea to be there and I was not, although that ultimately made me motivated.

Morata also talked about missing out on the 2018 World Cup: I do not hold a grudge against former Spain coach Julen Lopetegui, I have done a lot of nice things with him too, it was his opinion and I did not do my best season either. But I do not hold a grudge against anyone, I wish him all the best and more now that he is at Real Madrid.
