Morata wants ‘unstoppable’ Isco to follow him from Real Madrid to Chelsea
Alvaro Morata would take Isco to Chelsea if he had the chance to lure another top talent away from Real Madrid.
The Spanish striker left Santiago Bernabeu over the summer in a £70 million transfer to Stamford Bridge.
Morata has impressed in England, netting eight times for the reigning Premier League champions in 15 appearances to date.

He also has one international goal to his name this term and would like to see a man who has impressed alongside him, while also shining for Real, join him in west London.
Pressed by Cadena Ser on which fellow Spaniard he would snap up, Morata said: “I would take [Isco] to Chelsea now when I return [from the Spanish camp].
“But I think that right now he has one of the most important roles at Madrid. In the national team he is also key.
“I think he is unstoppable when he feels important. The whole world has seen it since he took the reins at Madrid.
“He is the most important player at Real Madrid and in the national team. He changes the games, he makes the difference. He dances with the ball. Furthermore, he is my friend.”
Amid the ongoing injury struggles of Gareth Bale and the uncharacteristic dip in form endured by Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco has remained a model of consistency in Madrid.
He has found the target four times this season, while also contributing three assists in La Liga.
At just 25 years of age, there is still the promise of further improvement to come from a man widely regarded to be one of the finest playmakers in Europe.
Whether Chelsea ever get the opportunity to benefit from his considerable talent remains to be seen, while Morata could still be reunited with Isco at Real after conceding that he cannot rule out taking in a third spell in the Spanish capital.
