Alvaro Morata has denied he dislikes living in London, saying he would “probably” sign a 10-year deal at Chelsea if he could.
The striker had told a newspaper in Italy he did not see himself living in London “for very long”.
Asked about the quotes before Tuesday’s Champions League game at Roma, he clarified he meant he will not remain in London when he retires.
“I’m really happy here and enjoying London with my wife,” he said.
“When I finish my career, I prefer to come back to my country. I prefer the place where I was born, that’s normal. When I say London is a stressful city, I’m talking about the traffic and a lot of people. It’s an incredible city.”
