24 June 2016 12:46

Alvaro Morata has bid an emotional farewell to Juventus, saying he will always be a supporter of the Italian club as he makes his Real Madrid return.

The striker, who is representing Spain at Euro 2016, sees his two-year stint in Turin come to an end after the Spanish giants decided to exercise the buy-back clause included in the deal which brought the 23-year-old to Italy in 2014.

An open letter published on the player's official website on Friday read: "Hello everyone. It's not easy for me to write this letter. First of all, I want to thank those who have believed in me, counted on me and treated me kindly so that I could be happy at Juventus and in Turin."

"Thanks to president Andrea Agnelli, Pavel Nedved, John Elkann, Giuseppe Marotta, Matteo Fabris and, above all, Fabio Paratici and Javier Ribalta.

"Thanks to everyone working for this great club. Storekeepers, physiotherapists, doctors, the security team, chefs.

"Of course, thanks to all the Juventus supporters from all around the world for all the support and the affection they have given me.

"Thanks to the coach for his belief in me, and for making me a better player, to the captains for taking care of me, and to all my team mates for all the incredible days I have spent with them, because winning with them was spectacular.

"I remain marked by this club, its history and all of you.

"Wherever I will go I will always be a Juventus supporter, and I'll be able to say proudly and out loud that I've been part of this club and I've been a champion with this shirt.

"Once again, thanks everyone for letting me be part of this family. With love, Alvaro."
