Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata spent two seasons at Juventus before Real Madrid triggered a clause in his contract to take him back to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Morata failed to establish himself at the Bernabeu as he played second fiddle to Karim Benzema, and then moved to Chelsea last summer.

The Spaniard is currently struggling in the Premier League despite having started the season in good form, and reports claim Juventus will be interested in re-signing the striker.

Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta has confirmed that the club will like to sign back former players Morata and Paul Pogba, although he doesn’t think Juve can afford them.

“I don’t really believe in players coming back after having gone away, but there are also exceptions,” Marotta told Mediaset.

“They are two great professionals who left excellent memories, but the market value that they have reached is a mirage for us.”
