Real Madrid striker Morata: I owe us after Juventus goal

The Spain global has also been linked with Chelsea and, asked about the gossip at a news conference ahead of his team's Liga match against Eibar on Saturday, Simeone offered an unequivocal response. He eventually moved to Real's La Fabrica and progressed into a first-team player for the club.

Morata himself alluded to the interest from England in a recent Guardian interview published on April 12: "Various Premier League coaches called to ask that I play for them".

"I did not say that to [Morata]", he said.


Morata, linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, said that when Real Madrid had come back in for him "it was a dream", adding: "It was a case of choosing - keep being and kid and enjoy playing football or trying to become a professional. I didn't have the head for it, though-I was too impatient". "Since then, time has flown by".

After breaking into the Madrid first team set-up but being behind the first-choice strike force, Morata spent two season at Juventus before being brought back to the Bernabeu last summer.

Despite starting mere 12 league fixtures this season, the Spain global managed 13 La Liga goals, while netting another five times in other competitions.


"When the draw was made, my stomach turned", he recalled.

"Real Madrid believed in me and I'd been waiting to hear that for a long time".

"It was destiny. I suffered a great deal about that goal, as I'd have preferred to score against any other club than Real Madrid". I also expect a Calderon closer than ever because this season has been extraordinary: Copa semi-finals, the nine points on Sevilla that we recovered, a Champions League semi-final, with the possibility of turning it around, and third in the League, which helps the club grow.
