Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has been linked with a move away from the Spanish capital with Chelsea interested in bringing him to London.
The 24-year-old striker has poured cold water on speculations linking him with a move to Chelsea by insisting it would be crazy to leave Real Madrid.
“I want to be playing and to be important to the squad, particularly next year when there is the World Cup,” Morata told Tele5 after scoring in Spain’s 2-2 draw with Colombia last night.
“But I want to fight for my place here, I would be crazy to leave Real Madrid.
“It’s hard to imagine going back to Italy, despite my experience in Serie A being extraordinary. I would like to stay at Real Madrid, and the only club for me in Italy are Juventus.”
Morata scored 20 goals in all competitions for Madrid last season.
