Chelsea FC will be without the injured Morata when the Blues take on West Bromwich Albion in front of their home fans at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Morata started his Chelsea career in blistering form, with eight goals in his first nine matches, but has struggled with form and injuries since.

Chelsea fans will not be happy to hear their star striker talking up Real, with the goalscorer now unavailable for selection.

'You ask me how long he is out, maybe he needs one day, one month, or is out for the season, I don't know.

Chelsea striker Àlvaro Morata has suggested that he could be open to a move back to Real Madrid according to the Daily Mail.

His penalty miss in the 2012 semi-final also proved to be decisive as Chelsea went on to win their first Champions League trophy.

These are not the best of times for Álvaro Morata, in fact it's arguably the most testing moment he's been through since joining Chelsea last summer. I don't know. I'm a bit anxious because he's an importan player for us. I don't know how long he will be out.

Asked what he would do if his former club came calling, he explained: "Look, I have to respect Chelsea who made a massive effort to sign me and I am very happy here".

"We're struggling a lot to find the solution to the pain in his back". I don't know. For this reason, I'm a bit anxious. "Because you know very well the importance of the player".

Eden Hazard has dropped a major hint about moving to Real Madrid. "But Madrid is always Madrid", said the striker to Espacio Reservado.
