Real Madrid centre-forward Álvaro Morata could seek a return to Serie A champions Juventus, according to a report in the Italian media on Tuesday.

Morata has not enjoyed the game time he had hoped for since re-signing for first club Real after two years in Turin, making just six LaLiga starts this season.

Striker reportedly already considering future

Morata spent two seasons at Juventus, before being bought back by Real Madrid last summer.

And Corriere dello Sport says he is starting to wonder whether going back to Madrid was the right move, and would be keen on the idea of rejoining Juve.

Indeed, the newspaper claims that the Spain international has let his former Bianconeri team-mates know of his interest in returning to Juventus Stadium.

Morata is said not to be put off by his tough start to his final term at Juve - where at this stage of the campaign he had played only 148 minutes more than this year - or the competition he'd face for a striking berth from the likes of Gonzalo Higuaín.

Juve deal a non-starter this winter

Such a switch would not happen until the summer, as Real are currently serving a FIFA transfer ban and would be unable to bring in a replacement this January.
