Real Madrid’s transfer ban does not take effect until the summer, meaning the Spanish giants are still able to sign new players until the end of the current transfer window.

Signing elite stars in January is a notoriously difficult task, but there is one striker Real Madrid could land without any trouble - provided the player agrees to the move - this month.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, Real Madrid could sign Juventus forward Alvaro Morata if they activate the player’s €35 million buy-back clause.

Morata, who left Real Madrid for Juventus for €20 million back in the summer of 2014, scored 15 goals in 46 appearances for the Old Lady last season - including one in the Champions League final against Barcelona - and won both the Serie A and Coppa Italia titles.

Things haven’t been going quite so well for the Spain international this season, however. In 17 league appearances, Morata has found the back of the net once.

In 24 appearances in all competitions, Morata has scored a disappointing three goals.

Morata is a Madridista

Nevertheless, if Zinedine Zidane wants to bolster his attacking options, knowing that he will not be able to bring in another striker until the summer of 2017, then Morata would certainly be a decent option.

Morata is a Madridista - born in the city and educated at Real Madrid’s youth academy before making his first-team debut in December 2010.

Zidane may hand chances to Jese and Mayoral instead

However, there’s a chance that Zidane will instead opt to give the likes of Jese and the talented 18-year-old Borja Mayoral, who made his first-team debut earlier this season, more opportunities over the next 18 months.

Should Real Madrid splash the cash on brining Alvaro Morata back to the Bernabeu this month? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
