DONE DEAL: Real Madrid confirm Morata signing

Real Madrid have confirmed the re-signing of Alvaro Morata from Juventus.

The Spaniard moved to the Italian champions back in 2014 on a €20million deal after finding oportunities limitted at Real Madrid.

The striker was an instant hit in Italy, scoring 15 goals in his debut season, followed by a further 12 goals in his second season.

However, Real Madrid have decided to exercise a clause in the strikers contract to take him back to the Bernabeu for just €30million.

A statement on the club website said:

Real Madrid C.F. have informed Juventus FC of their decision to salvage the federative rights on the player Alvaro Morata, who will join up with the first team for pre-season training under the command of Zinedine Zidane.

It has been speculated that Real Madrid will cash in Morata after the striker has attracted Premier League attention from Manchester United and Arsenal.

Morata is currently in playing for Spain at Euro 2016 in France, where he has scored two goals.
