Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move in signing Alvaro Morata this summer.
Now the Spanish international has said farewell to Juventus via Instagram after an impressive two season with Juventus.
It’s however unclear what Real Madrid intend to do with their latest signing but there are rumours they will sell him to Arsenal or Chelsea who are currently keen on signing him.

“Hello everyone,” writes Morata. “Writing this letter isn’t easy for me. I’d like firstly to thank all the people who believed in me, who placed their faith in me and who treated me extremely well to make me happy at Juventus and in Turin.
“Thanks to president Andrea Agnelli, Pavel Nedved, John Elkan, Giuseppe Marotta, Matteo Fabris and above all to Fabio Paratici and Javier Ribalta. Thanks to all the people who work for this immense club that is Juventus. Workers, physiotherapists, doctors, security, chefs. In brief, thanks to all who are part of Juve.
“Thanks of course to all the Juventus fans in the world for their unconditional love and support, which was never lacking.
“Thanks to the Coach for believing in me and for turning me into a better footballer, to the captains who took care of me with such dedication and to my teammates for all the incredible days I spent with them, because winning with them was spectacular.
“I remain marked by this club, its history and all of you. Wherever I go I’ll always feel like a Juventino and I’ll be able to say with pride and in a loud voice that I wore the Juventus colours and that I was one of their champions.
“Thanks once again to everyone for letting me be part of this family.”
