Atletico Madrid loanee Alvaro Morata has expressed his desire to stay in Spain despite the chances of Chelsea recalling him this summer.
The striker moved to the La Liga runners-up in January on an 18-month loan deal after he failed to perform at Stamford Bridge.
Regardless of Chelsea being his first club, Morata has made it clear that he would like to play away from the Premier League club.
Morata when asked by reporters whether he is afraid to be recalled to England this summer which would take him away from Atletico, he replied: “I have been clear that I want to be here.
“It’s not even in my head to leave this club. I want it to be resolved as soon as possible; I’m happy here, I want to be here for all the years I have left as a professional. As long as the people love me and are happy with my work, I want to be here. I have found happiness here; I’m where I want to be.”
The Spanish international switched from La Liga to Premier League two years back when he decided that he will not be getting enough time to play at Real Madrid, and he is more than happy at Chelsea where his demand could be fulfilled.
At Stamford Bridge, Morata scored on his debut for Chelsea in their opening Premier League match against Burnley, and he scored six goals in his opening six league matches.
However, that was the only best for him as he could manage just five league goals for the rest of the 17/18 season.

In another transfer rumours, Tammy Abraham has told Chelsea that he is ready to lead the line for the next season.
The striker made a move to Aston Villa on loan last summer, and yesterday he played a key role as Dean Smith’s side beat Derby 2-1 in the finals of Championship Play-off.
After making a return to the Premier League for the first time since 2016, Villa would like to retain of Abraham, who has scored 26 goals this season, and it is most likely they could take him on loan for another year.
When asked if he thinks he was ready to lead the line for the Blues for the next season, Abraham said: “The aim is to be at the highest level and playing the best football, and if Chelsea says they need me there, I will put 100 per cent in.
“Every player wants to start. Obviously, it is always difficult at a club like Chelsea because they have got world-class players. But, for me, it is about believing in myself and just keeping doing what I do. I do believe in myself, so wherever I am, I believe I will score goals.”
If Abraham come to London this summer, then he would get a tough fight for the place with Olivier Giroud, who has signed a new one-year contract.
That would also fulfil the English international’s desire to play in the Premier League football, and the England Under-21 international is determined to play in the top flight next in the upcoming campaign.
