Alvaro Morata reportedly wants his former Real Madrid teammate Isco to join him at the Stamford Bridge.
With a club-record £70 million transfer free, Morata joined Chelsea with high promise of being the right replacement of Chelsea’s wantaway, Diego Costa.
The Spaniard had a sparkling start of life at his new club after scoring seven goals in his opening eight appearances. Sadly, he suffered a hamstring injury against Manchester City in the month of October. The injury raised concerns of Chelsea fans for the player and his goal drought of six-games was an addition to that.
However, in Chelsea’s last game against league rivals Manchester United, Morata proved himself as a big threat to one of the best defences in the Premier League. And as a result, the 25-year-old’s header past David de Gea gave Chelsea much needed three points and put an end to his struggle of finding the end of the net.
In an interview with Spanish radio network Cadena Ser, when Morata was asked about the former teammate he would like to bring to the Stamford Bridge, he said, “I would take [Isco] to Chelsea now when I return [from the Spanish camp],”
“But I think that right now he has one of the most important roles at Madrid. In the national team he is also key. I think he is unstoppable when he feels important. The whole world has seen it since he took the reins at Madrid.”
“He is the most important player at Real Madrid and in the national team. He changes the games, he makes the difference. He dances with the ball. Furthermore, he is my friend.”
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, any club would love to have Isco in their squad. But, it isn’t likely because he isn’t planning to leave Real Madrid any time soon having penned down a deal with a €700 million release clause in September.
But if Isco does come to Chelsea any time in the future, you can imagine what an attacking trio of Morata, Hazard and Isco can do to the defences.
