Atletico Madrid forward Alvaro Morata says that he has no intention of returning to parent club Chelsea during the summer.

Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata has said that he wishes to remain at Atletico Madrid for the rest of his career.

Morata was allowed to link up with the La Liga giants on an 18-month loan deal in January, and the Spain international contributed six goals and one assist from 15 league outings during the second half of the campaign.

Neither club are yet to confirm their plans for Morata ahead of next season, but the 26-year-old has revealed that he has no intention of returning to his parent club.

Morata told reporters: "I want to be here, I'm going to do everything I can to continue playing here. I did everything in my power to come, and I'll do everything in my power to stay.

"I do not even consider going to another club. I'm delighted and I think I have to do a lot of things here.

"I do not have anything else in mind, I would like to be at Atletico Madrid all the years that I have left of my career, to be as important as possible in the future."

Morata still has three years remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge.
