- Alvaro Morata says he wants to stay at Chelsea for a longer period of time
- He has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer
- The Spain international said he is even planning to buy a house in London
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has confirmed that he has no plan of leaving the Premier League side after scoring against Arsenal on Saturday, August 18.
Before the start of the new season in the Premier League, the Spain international was heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
And now, the former Juventus star has made it clear that he wants to stay in the Premier League to prove himself.
‘There was never a thought for me to leave. For me, it’s easy. I could have gone back to Spain or Italy, all the people believe in me there but I want to change all the things here.
‘'I want to, not for all the haters, but for me and for Chelsea.
'‘I am looking forward to buying a house and I can’t wait for the babies to grow up to put them into school.
‘'I am very happy and it’s just the beginning of the new season. Why would I not be happy? I want to change all the thinking from the people who say I’m not.
‘'It’s the only reason I stay here, otherwise if Chelsea said you are not in our plans,'' Morata explained according to the report by Dailymail.
