According to the Telegraph, Chelsea have threatened to recall Alvaro Morata unless Atletico pay £50million to turn his loan deal into a permanent one this summer.
The striker joined the Spanish side on loan in January after struggling to impress under Maurizio Sarri in the first half of the season.
Chelsea’s threat to recall Morata won’t sit well with the striker as the 26 year old has made it clear where he wants to play his football next season.
“As I arrive at the training centre [at Atletico], you can see in people’s faces when they trust you. When you are in the dressing room ahead a game, you see how your team-mates look at you,” Morata told Goal.
“At Chelsea there came a time when my team-mates, except for the Spaniards, well… you know, it is not the same when you play and you know that you give a pass to someone who is not going to do as well. You do not give the pass in the same way.
“Everyone who has played football once will understand that.
“And in the end, it is a situation that you cannot control: it is neither about being positive or negative, or about trying to have fun or being worried. It’s the confidence that others have in you: your team-mates, the club… And I found it here at Atletico.
“I have said it many times: there is a moment in which there are things that surpass fame, money and everything. Thank God, at Atletico I’ve been able to have a bit of all of this, but I would love to be here every year that I’m able to play at the highest level.
“I want to stay at Atletico but, contractually, Chelsea can call me back. We will see what happens in the negotiations between them, but the two clubs already know what I want. I only ask, please, as I said to Atletico, do everything possible to do it as soon as possible.
“Because I just want to be here.”
