Huge sigh of relief for Chelsea fans as star attacker drops a major hint on his future at Stamford Bridge

Chelse striker Alvaro Morata has not had the greatest of first seasons at the club after scoring only 11 goals from 31 Premier League games.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus striker even saw his place in the starting line-up be taken up by Olivier Giroud after the Frenchman joined us in the winter window.

There have been reports claiming that Morata might be looking to move away from the club in the summer but the 25-year-old striker dropped a major clue that he would be remaining at Stamford Bridge beyond the summer via an Instagram story.

Morata was also dropped from the Spain squad and is not part of the World Cup team but it does seem that he wants to stay at the Bridge and prove his ability next season.

The 25-year-old could be playing under new management next season with Antonio Conte set to leave and Maurizio Sarri coming in to take up the job.

That could be one reason why Morata does want to stay and under Sarri, we could possibly see a reinvigorated striker in the Spaniard.

Sarri might know a bit about Morata as the striker did spend a couple of years on loan at Juventus. The 25-year-old can still get us a lot of goals if we can build a team around him.

Morata still is young and can become one of the best strikers in the game and with him looking likely to stay next season, there might be a bagful of goals for the 25-year-old at the Bridge.
