Alvaro Morata spent the second half of last season at Atletico Madrid. He left Stamford Bridge on an 18-month temporary deal in January.
With Chelsea banned from signing new players and having already lost Eden Hazard, the Blues have reportedly told Atletico Madrid to make Morata’s move permanent or lose him this summer. Chelsea have the option to recall him if Madrid don’t make the move permanent.
Is Morata really needed at Stamford Bridge next season?
Here are 4 reasons why Chelsea shouldn’t recall Morata from Atletico Madrid
1. Morata Doesn’t Want To Return
Why bring back a player who isn’t willing to play for your club? Morata has made it clear that he has no intention returning to Stamford Bridge so bringing the player back to the club against his wishes could backfire. It’s never advisable keeping a player that wants to leave.
In a recent interview with Marca, Morata revealed he wasn’t thinking about returning to Chelsea and will do all he can to remain at Atletico Madrid.
Morata said: “What is clear is what I want, I want to be here [Atletico Madrid].
“I’m going to do all I can to keep playing here, I did all I could to come and I will do all I can to stay. I’m not thinking about going back anywhere, only being here.
“I’m happy here and I want to be here for the years I have left at the top level.”
2. Chelsea Could Lose Tammy Abraham
Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham has shown from his temporary spells at Bristol City and Aston Villa that he is lethal in front of goal. The 21 year old scored 26 goals last season to help Aston Villa secure Premier League promotion.
Bringing Morata back to Chelsea will limit Abraham’s chances of playing for the first team next season. Would Abraham push for a move away from Stamford Bridge if he does not play? Probably.
In a recent interview he granted, Abraham insisted it was now or never.
Abraham said: “I really do feel I am ready for the Premier League.
“There is no better time for a young player to be at Chelsea. I am going to give it my all.
“This year is the most important year for us. It is now or never. There will never be a better time to play the youngsters. The transfer ban is not what the club wanted but for us it is exciting.”
It will be sad if Morata is the man to force a talent like Abraham away from the club.
