Morata left the Spanish capital in 2017 joining Stamford Bridge for £58million from Real Madrid.

But after a miserable two seasons, that included just 24 goals, the striker was shipped back to La Liga in January joining Atletico on loan.

Scoring six in 15 games Morata then joined Diego Simeone's side permanently this summer.

And the 26-year-old told Spanish news outlet La Otra Cronica he was pushing for a move to Atletico five seasons ago, but is just happy his Chelsea nightmare has finally finished.

He said: "It seems like the obvious thing to say to gain points with the fans but my family and I were coming from a really bad time in London.

"Here we have regained our happiness.

"Though many people may not believe it, we spent four or five summers wanting to come to Atletico. I am very happy."

Morata, like former Chelsea team-mate Thibaut Courtois, failed to settle down with his family in West London.

And the former Juventus forward revealed his wife lost her appetite after suffering nausea, with the couple spending most of their time in bed, as they both frequently fell ill.

He added: "I had to receive a lot of injections in my back. I do not like needles one bit so I would get home in a bad mood.

"She could not eat anything because she was very ill and had nausea.

"We both spent a lot of time in bed. When you try to understand the person laying next to you who is ill but you are worse.

"It was a difficult situation."
