The Spanish striker who has already said he prefers living in Italy than England has once again said the prices of renting apartments are high.
Speaking after Chelsea’s defeat to Roma, Morata said: “I’m very happy, I really like London.
“It’s only, a lot of traffic, in future I look to buy an apartment, I pay the high rental prices.
“Sometimes when I arrive at home I speak to my wife in English and she says ‘I don’t know what you are talking about’.”
The 25-year-old striker has scored seven goals in 14 games since his club record move from hometown club Real Madrid on a five-year deal in the summer.
