Real Madrid have confirmed that Alvaro Morata will return to the club in the summer.
The announcement came soon after Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta had said he expected Morata to go back to Real.
Madrid had an option to buy back Morata, 23, for a pre-determined fee as part of the deal which saw the Spain international join Juve two years ago, and confirmed that they had done so.
An official statement on the clubs website says;
Real Madrid C. F. have informed Juventus FC of their decision to salvage the federative rights on the player Álvaro Morata, who will join up with the first team for pre-season training under the command of Zinedine Zidane.
