Alvaro Morata admits he is in the dark over Chelsea future

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata admits he's unsure what the future holds amid recent speculation linking him with Atletico Madrid and Juventus.
The 25-year-old Spanish marksman relocated to Stamford Bridge from boyhood-club Real Madrid last summer with his present deal in west London expiring on June 2022.
He's subsequently enjoyed a modest debut campaign, scoring 15 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions, with 11 of those coming in 31 league games.
And now the Real Madrid academy graduate has recently been associated with a move away, though he is coy on the subject of a move away from England.
"For now I do not know anything about my future at Chelsea or Atletico. At this moment I'm thinking only of holidays," he told Sport Mediaset.
Following a relatively poor season at Chelsea, Morata has been left out of the Spanish squad that will travel to Russia for the 2018 World Cup, despite having a 13-in-23 matches goalscoring record for La Roja.

The native of Madrid has, to date, featured across 48 matches for Chelsea in all competitions, registering 15 goals and creating a further six for his teammates.
In the Premier League season just gone, he managed 11 goals across 31 outings (0.35 per game or a goal every 187.7 minutes).
He finished as the Blues' second-top scorer in the league behind the mercurial Eden Hazard who bagged 12, meaning both were the only players under Antonio Conte who reached double figures in the league.
