The Spaniard joined the Blues from Los Blancos for a fee of €62 million (R9.6 billion), replacing Fernando Torres as the club's record signing.
The 24-year-old has now insisted he had to leave Los Blancos in order to be seen as more than just a hot prospect.
"I've come to a big team, my goal is to win titles. Destiny has given me that chance and I want to exploit it," he said, as quoted by Calciomercato.com.
"I've always been seen as a player with prospects, but this year I just want to start to be seen in another way.
"Chelsea has made a tremendous economic effort to take me away from Real Madrid. From Conte, to the fans, to the club, I have all the cards in place to do well.
"I finally can play five games in a row, which never happened with Real Madrid.
"The Blues have an Italian style of play, here the striker has to be a point of reference.
"In England, there is another rhythm compared to Spain, where, for example, there is more time to think about the game, which is why the Premier League is one of the most interesting championships to watch."
Morata scored and assisted in both his first home games for Chelsea, becoming the first player in Premier League history to achieve this record, according to Opta Sports.
