Those who know me know that I will always have my season ticket at the metropolitan,” he said on his Instagram account.
“I want to give you the thank you for these two incredible years in which I have lived moments that I will never forget and in which I have felt like one more from the moment I arrived. Fighting for these colors has been a true pride and celebrating goals with this shirt is a dream come true. It is such a great club because its people are what make it so great, “Morata added.
“All those historic nights that any footballer would dream of living will remain in my memory forever. In my heart, there will always be a place for you. Thank you Atlético de Madrid,” said the Madrid striker, who returns to Juventus, where he already played between 2014 and 2017.
