The Real Madrid forward posted a photo of the hand of his now fiancée with a new ring firmly attached and wrote the message: "She said YEES!! We're getting married!!! I love you @alicecampello".

A magical moment

The Madrid youth product, who returned in the summer after a spell with Juventus, chose the venue of the Teatro Rialto, a theatre in Madrid to pop the question. And appropriately enough it was at a magic show called, El Mago POP where the magician himself was complicit in the plan. The couple were asked to be part of a routine and when Alice turned around she found her husband on bended knee with an important question to ask. The crowd enjoyed it and one of them captured it on their mobile phone.

Fortunately for everyone involved with the Bernabéu club Campello responded well and Morata can go into Saturday evening's game against Deportivo in a positive frame of mind.
