Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has taken aim at Real Madrid after leaving in August.

Real Madrid re-signed Morata from Juventus in the summer 2016 after they triggered his £25m buy-back clause.

“Why I chose to return to Real Madrid? Because there were contractual agreements that needed to be respected,” Morata told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“The disappointment was enormous: I found myself back to square one. They treated me like the boy I was before my two seasons in Italy.

“Juve’s trademark? A winning mentality and great professionalism. My two seasons at Juve were great. I went there as a boy and left as a real player.

“For a Spaniard, Italy is the best country to live in. You have everything: beauty, history, art, cooking, fashion. I’d have never left Italy and Juve.”
