He scored just just 24 goals in 72 appearances across all competitions during his time at Chelsea.

“I’ve never had depression and I hope I never do, but I came close,” Morata told El Mundo.

“I don’t believe it is given the importance that it should.

“When your head doesn’t work well, you are your worst enemy. During those times, it doesn’t matter what you do, you are always fighting against yourself. Depression is an illness just like breaking your ankle.”
