Alvaro Morata Reveals Why He Left Real Madrid

With Alvaro Morata set to complete a massive R1.2 billion move to Chelsea, he has now revealed why he decided to leave UEFA Champions League holders Real Madrid.

The 24-year-old will become the most expensive Spanish player in history, replacing Fernando Torres, when he completes his transfer to the Blues.

Morata, who still needs to undergo a medical with the Premier League champions, has now explained that he opted to leave the Santiago Bernabeu because he wants to "grow up".

"I am very happy, god willing, tomorrow I will be at Chelsea, a club that has always admired me," he told Marca.

"I hope that I do well at Chelsea.

"I'm going to grow up, if not I would not have gone."

The Spaniard, who was also closely linked with Manchester United before they decided to sign Romelu Lukaku, insisted he will only be calm once his transfer to Chelsea is fully completed.

"It was clear that the goal was to leave, it's been a fairly strange summer and until I pass the medical examination, I'm not going to be calm," Morata added.

"Again, I do not think I'm going back to Madrid, I find it difficult, and for now it's not something that I am considering.

"Many thanks to all the Madridistas who have supported me once more, I will always wish the best to Madrid."
