VIDEO: Heart-warming Moment Antonio Rudiger Ran to Welcome Alvaro Morata on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge Tunnel

The summer transfer window of 2017 remains one of the most infamous in Chelsea’s recent history. Antonio Rudiger was signed but that was a rare success. Also recruited were Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater, Davide Zappacosta, and Morata, who was the most expensive of the bunch.

The Blues spent an initial £60million to sign the Spaniard from Real Madrid but after a positive start, his form deteriorated and his confidence evaporated. He would spend just 18 months at Stamford Bridge before signing for Atletico Madrid on a loan deal that would later become permanent.

“I’ve never had depression and I hope I never do, but I came close,” Morata said in an interview with El Mundo earlier this year when discussing his time at Chelsea. “I don’t believe it is given the importance that it should.

“When your head doesn’t work well, you are your worst enemy. During those times, it doesn’t matter what you do, you are always fighting against yourself. Depression is an illness just like breaking your ankle.”

Morata would spend 18 months with Atletico before rejoining Juventus in the summer of 2020. He scored 20 goals last season and has four this. It’s partly why he was chosen to spearhead the Old Lady’s attack against Chelsea last night.
