Alvaro Morata is having a decent season at Juventus for the year 2021. Though, three years ago, he was having the toughest time at Chelsea. His tenure at Stamford Bridge was strenuous, and Morata came close to depression.
Alvaro Morata joined Chelsea on July 19th, 2017 following a successful season at Real Madrid. The Spaniard joined to be the replacement for Diego Costa. He started his life with the Blues in a dominating way, by recording eleven goals and six assists in thirty-one Premier League appearances. However, he could not keep up with his form for the 2018-19 season.
Life in London became too hard for Spaniard, and he soon desired a move away from Chelsea.
Times were tough in London 😔

In an interview on March 25th, 2021, he said, “Depression is an illness that is as painful as breaking an ankle. I have never had Depression, but at Chelsea, the chances of that happening was always high.”
“When your own head becomes your biggest enemy, then you end up fighting with yourself. Depression is a serious issue and should be given more importance than what it is getting now,” said Alvaro Morata.
The changes in his behavior were noted by the Chelsea management and they sent him on loan to Atletico Madrid on January 27th, 2019.
Alvarito’s resurgence after his troubled times with Chelsea
After he arrived at the Wanda Metropolitano Arena, the Spanish striker got the breathing space he wanted. In a short time, he came to his own and recorded eighteen goals and three assists in forty-nine La Liga appearances overall.
Atletico Madrid eventually bought from Chelsea to send him on loan to Juventus on September 22nd, 2020. His return to the Allianz Stadium after six years was welcomed by the fans of Goebel.
Following his arrival, Alvaro recorded seven goals and eight assists in twenty-two Serie A appearances. The Spaniard did his all to help Juventus survive the highly competitive Italian league as the resurgence of Inter Milan and AC Milan saw them fall down from first place.
Though Morata’s return to I Bianconeri was a boost for the thirty-six-time Serie A champions, it was Cristiano Ronaldo’s introduction that reasserted their dominance in Serie A.
The Portuguese and Spanish forward duo did their best to boost their team to third place on the points table. Through the chemistry they built at Juventus, the duo started to prefer each other as strike partners over the other forwards in Goeba.
Alvaro Morata does not believe that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Juventus
There is a chance that Ronaldo can move away from Juventus. However, Morato has quashed all such talks by reiterating how happy the Portuguese forward is with the Zebre.
Ronaldo is linked with a return to Manchester United and Real Madrid, and his departure would break the heart of Juventus and Morata.
Both these forwards have recorded forty-one goal contributions in forty-six appearances this season. Ron has a better record than Alvaro Morata; hence his chances of leaving are at a standstill.
Therefore, Alvaro Morata can rest easy knowing that Cris will not leave and score more goals with the thirty-six forward.
