Chelsea striker Morata: I dreamed of playing for Atletico Madrid

Chelsea striker Morata: I dreamed of playing for Atletico Madrid”

Football fans are not exactly known for their patience and that has been in full evidence in the case of Alvaro Morata and his spell at Chelsea.

Alvaro Morata is set to begin a new stint in his playing career as he joins Atletico Madrid on a one and half year loan deal.

The deal includes a £48.5million option for Atletico to buy the 26-year-old.

When you can't get Radamel Falcao, Andriy Shevchenko, Claudio Pizarro, Mateja Kezman, Hernan Crespo, Fernando Torres, Alexandre Pato, etc, etc, bedded in and scoring regularly, the underlying issue might not be the personnel.

"Following the arrival of Olivier Giroud in January, striking responsibilities were shared between the pair during the second part of the campaign".

Los Rojiblancos have had problems of their own this season in attack, not too dissimilar to Chelsea.

Morata's move ends a hard 18-month stay at Chelsea, during which the forward struggled to convince as the Blues' first-choice centre-forward and was largely frozen out by current manager Maurizio Sarri. Like Eden Hazard at the Bridge, Antoine Griezmann is looked upon for inspiration on most occasions, with Diego Costa struggling for form in addition to dealing with injuries.

Set to line up alongside Diego Godin and others at Atletico Madrid.

Morata could make his debut against Real Betis next Sunday in the La Liga fixture. Fans have already voiced their displeasure over the player's capture, although the 26-year-old effused excitement upon completing the move. I am looking forward to everything being completed so I can start training with my team-mates'.

A statement released on the club's official website read: "Alvaro Morata has today joined Atletico Madrid on loan until the end of the 2019/20 season".
