Real Madrid boss Ancelotti rules out re-signing Juventus striker Morata

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out re-signing Alvaro Morata from Juventus.

Real hold a buy-back option on the Spanish striker.

However, Ancelotti told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Morata needed to play.

"He's a young player who was looking for more opportunities and consistency. He had a lot of offers and he is the one who chose Juve.

"Morata is a modern striker, who has pace, rhythm and intensity. He is cool in front of goal and is a hard worker.

"In Morata's contract, Real hold an option to buy back the player but I think he will stay at Juventus."
