Spain international Alvaro Morata is set to remain at Stamford Bridge beyond this summer after the player admits he wants to play under Maurizio Sarri.
The former Real Madrid star player hasn’t been the player he was while at Juventus since he moved to the West London outfits.
Morata failed to live up to fans expectations throughout last season but he has vowed to up his game in the coming campaign, so as to justify the huge fee paid by the club for his signature.
Morata broke Chelsea’s transfer record last summer when Roman Abramovic paid a whopping sum of £80m to Real Madrid for his service, hoping he would help solve the goalscoring crisis facing the club as at that time.
Having failed to light up the Premier League as thought by many fans, there are calls from the club’s faithful that he should be sold out to clubs who are ready to spend on his signature.
It was believed that Juventus were eager to get him on a permanent deal, having seen how important he was during his two-year loan spell with them.
However, in one of Morata’s interactions with reporters, the player revealed he’s happy with the way things are going under the new manager and he’s eager to be part of the team in the coming season.
According to him, he has learnt from the past errors and has seen how physical the League could be in the course of the season.

“But I want to fight. I have had low pressure, because I had already played in Italy and Spain and done good things. But I decided to stay here, I wanted to.” he said
As result of his decision to remain at Stamford Bridge, Juventus will surely move elsewhere to get another player, though the Scuddetto Champions didn’t really need a new goal-poacher since they have gotten Cristiano Ronaldo who can score goals aplenty.
