Morata: 'Chelsea the perfect club for me'

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is determined to make a big impact at Stamford Bridge after making the "hard" decision to leave Real Madrid in the summer.

Alvaro Morata has said that he intends to "make an explosion" during his time with Chelsea, describing Stamford Bridge as the "perfect place" to be.

The 24-year-old joined from Real Madrid in a £65m deal last month, fresh on the back of helping the club to a famous La Liga and Champions League double.

Spain international Morata was unhappy with his bit-part role at the Bernabeu, however, and he intends to make even more of an impact at Chelsea as a regular under boss Antonio Conte.

"I need to make an explosion in my career and I am at the perfect place, the perfect club to do that," he told Chelsea Magazine. "I have all the things I need and if I can work hard, I can make good things happen. I have very big motivation, I always think like a winner and I want to win everything it is possible to win.

"Last season the team won the Premier League and now we can try to win it again, and maybe the Champions League. It is the perfect situation. I decided to play in the Premier League and I want to play in Antonio's team. Now I need to work hard, score goals and play well for the team.

"There are very good players here and I think we can do something amazing. It is hard to leave Madrid but it is not so hard when you come to a club like Chelsea, with these players and with this coach."

Morata came off the bench to score one and set up another in Chelsea's 3-2 loss to Burnley in their opening Premier League fixture of the season.
