I'd only return to Madrid after winning everything with Chelsea — Alvaro Morata

"Of course, I would return to Real Madrid, but it's complicated". Lampard believes the setback slowed his progress down but is confident he will be a long term success for the club.

Premier League fans have undoubtedly been very impressed by Morata's instant impact but the Real Madrid academy graduate recognises that he'll always have critics. I owe a lot to Chelsea.

"The difference between [Antonio] Conte and [Zinedine] Zidane is not so much, Conte is very passionate, he's a winner, what you see is what you get". There is more traffic jams than in Madrid.

His efforts have certainly been deserving of a few beers, especially as his teammates have struggled to replicate their performances from last season. "Real Madrid is the top team that there is".

He did, however, go on to speak about Madrid in detail and outlined the reasons for him leaving: "I prefer that they [Madrid] miss me more as a person than as a player".

"Sincerely, I don't think that [will] happen, but you never know".

"I'm the centre forward for a very important club in England". I have a calmer life.

The Spanish international has spent time in not only his native land but also in Italy with Juventus in the past five years, helping the Bianconeri reach the UEFA Champions League final in 2015.

The Spaniard, 24, moved to the Blues in the summer in a £65m deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Antonio Conte's men have won three straight league games and sit fourth in the table, nine points behind runaway leaders Manchester City. "My life is calmer in London. I wanted to play, nothing else", Morata added.

"If we win the game, I even take a beer with me to have while walking home!" Despite this public exhibition of disgruntlement, Mkhitaryan has started all but one game in the league, so the manager clearly favours his talent.
