Alvaro Morata has touched down in Italy ahead of a sensational return to former side Juventus.
The striker left the Serie A club to join Real Madrid in 2016 but is set to rejoin the club on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid – with his exit paving the way for Luis Suarez’s arrival from Barcelona.
The club, who will have an option to buy the forward at the end of the season. shared photos of the 27-year-old arriving at the airport and he gave the cameras a thumbs up.
Morata scored 12 goals and made two assists for Atletico in the 2019-2020 season after making his loan move from Chelsea permanent last summer.
The forward never hit the heights expected of him at Stamford Bridge but fared better in LaLiga, where he managed 43 goals in 112 games for both Atletico and Real.
The striker scored 15 goals across two years in his first spell with Juve but Morata is arguably the club’s second choice after missing out on Suarez.
