Real activate Morata buy-back clause


Real Madrid have activated the buy-back clause to re-sign Alvaro Morata from Juventus.

Morata moved to Juventus from Real in 2014 but the La Liga giants had until July 15 to exercise their right to buy-back the 23-year-old.

They have activated the clause and will welcome him back to the Santiago Bernabeu ahead of the new season.

"All associated with Juventus Football Club would like to wish Alvaro the very best of luck wherever his future may take him and thank him for two truly excellent years of service to the team," a statement on Juventus' official website read.

Morata scored 27 goals in 93 appearances for Juventus, winning two Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia crowns, and there have been claims that Real will look to sell the striker amid interest from Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.
