New Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez could be looking to re-sign Alvaro Morata from Juventus, despite former Madrid manager Carlo Ancelloti selling the forward last season,

The 22-year-old fell victim to Real Madrid’s arch rivals Barcelona in Saturday’s Champions League final and a move back to his home town in Spain could give Morata the perfect platform to exact revenge on Barca in La Liga next season.

The forward is believed to have a buy-back clause that could make a return to the Spanish capital easier than previously anticipated, according to AS.

Although Madrid would lose about €8 million in the deal having to pay in access of €30 million to bring the striker home, having sold Morata for €22 million last summer.

Morata - who scored for Juve in Saturday's Champions League final - is thought to have made the move originally after finding first-team opportunities limited, with Karim Benzema consistently leading the forward line.

Morata: The perfect No. 9 for Real Madrid?

The club has seen an array of big players leave in recent years including Gonzalo Higuain, who is believed to have left for them same reason as Morata.

The Spanish international is well liked by Benitez, who sees him as the perfect number nine in what could be a new-look Madrid line-up, as Gareth Bale could move in behind Cristiano Ronaldo up-front.
