Morata moved to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid last summer for a then club record fee of £70 million and hit the ground running at the start of the 2017-18 season.
The Spanish striker scored six goals in his first six appearances in the blue shirt but his fortunes quickly took a turn for the worst thereafter.
Morata only managed to find the back of the net in the league 5 times, whilst contributing just 4 goals in other competitions following his promising start, often coming under intense scrutiny for his wastefulness in front of goal.
The 25-year-old forward has spoken out about the campaign this week, admitting that he came close to leaving Chelsea FC over the summer.
As Metro Sport reports, Morata said: “Last year I was not happy, everything was a disaster – I went out onto the pitch and did not know where I was. Leaving Chelsea? I considered playing in Spain again and going back to Italy but now I have stayed here and need to bounce back.”
Morata has started all four of Chelsea FC’s games at the start of the 2018-19 season, but only managed to find the back of the net once against Arsenal during in a 3-2 win.
However, Chelsea FC still sit joint top of the Premier League after a perfect start to the year and the former Madrid striker has been recalled to the Spain national squad as a result of his exploits so far.
