Real Madrid have confirmed they have exercised the buyback clause in bringing Alvaro Morata back to the Spanish capital club from Juventus.

The 23-year-old joined the Serie A winners in 2014 and the Champions League winners had inserted a clause in the contract, which could have allowed them to re-sign their former player.

"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," a statement read on Real's official website.

In the 2015/16 season, the Spain international managed nine goals for the Old Lady as they went on to win the title. His form has seen him attract interest from other clubs across Europe and the list includes the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain.

It is believed that the 11-time European champions are willing to part ways with their player in the summer transfer window. Real are looking to sell the player to the side which tables a better offer.

Currently, Morata is with Spain national team for the ongoing European championship in France. He opened the scoring in his side's 2-1 defeat to Croatia in the final group stage fixture.
