Spain and Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is reported to be unhappy in London. But it's not the weather or food that's getting him down, but the property prices.

Spain and Chelsea striker Álvaro Morata is reported to be unhappy in London. But it’s not the weather or food that’s getting him down, it’s the property prices.

He may have moved from Real Madrid to Chelsea over the summer for a cool £65 million, signing a £160,000-a-week contract in the process, but Spanish footballer Álvaro Morata has already expressed his disbelief at London’s extortionate property prices.

It usually takes many months for newly arrived Londoners to realise that the homes they’re living in really aren’t value for money. But canny Morata has seen the woods for the trees quite early on – possibly because, being Spanish, he is used to a better cost-quality ratio

British boxer Tyson Fury has been hitting the pads, and the bars, since his time in Marbella.

British boxer Tyson Fury has been hitting the pads, and the bars, since his time in Marbella.

He’s the six foot eight-inch Manchester giant; the Gypsy King: the self-proclaimed bad boy of heavyweight boxing; the Batman-besuited loose cannon of the ring… and actually a pretty handy boxer who revels in making his critics eat their words.

But for months, Tyson Fury, 28, has been out of shape, out of focus and out of the limelight as he lay low while serving a ban from boxing for substance abuse.

However, while Londoner Anthony Joshua was busy wowing the world last weekend, winning a thrilling 11-set knockout victory over Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko (the man who Fury dethroned in 2015 to the surprise of many), Fury was hitting the pads in Marbella with WBO World middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders, duly declaring that he has lost 1.28 stone since heading to the warmth of southern Spain. Fury hopes to get into shape in due time to capitalise on Joshua’s stardom-in-waiting, and wasted no time in challenging his British competitor to a fight in the not-so-distant future…

Premier League stars head for Marbella’s celeb hotspots

And so another Premier League season has drawn to a close, and with it the weekly refereeing furores, diving debates and discussions over the size of Wayne Rooney’s pay packet are put on the back burner for at least another few weeks.

But as attentions turn to next month’s World Cup spectacular in Brazil, those unlucky not to have made the cut have instead drowned their sorrows in a series of increasingly exotic and far-flung locations across the globe.

There have been football stars snapped on beaches in Dubai, beside pools in Las Vegas and cruising the boulevards of sunny LA. But one location more than most still manages to draw Premier League players like the proverbial loose ball in the penalty area – Puerto Banús
