Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata isn't closing the door on a potential return to his hometown club Real Madrid ... but he wants to finish up business at Stamford Bridge first.

The former Real striker, 25, joined the Blues in the summer for a massive €65-million fee and has settled in well, scoring seven goals and recording three assists in 10 Premier League appearances.

While his time at Real Madrid wasn't as long as he may have hoped, Morata is in no rush to return to the Santiago Bernabeu, either.

"Of course I would return to Real Madrid once I win all there is to win with Chelsea and after a long and successful career at Chelsea," Morata told Cadena Ser, as quoted by ESPN FC's Adriana Garcia. "It's difficult to say no to Madrid, especially for a Madridista. You never know, but I think it's very difficult and I honestly don't think it's going to happen.

"It's something I don't even consider. I owe a lot to Chelsea. I'm very happy at Chelsea and the only thing on my mind is playing for Chelsea."
