Alvaro Morata says that he feels like an important part of the Juventus team following his move from Real Madrid.

Juventus striker Alvaro Morata has said that he is enjoying life at the club following his summer transfer.

The 21-year-old joined the Bianconeri from Real Madrid in July, after failing to earn a regular spot at the European champions.

"The adventure in Italy is going very well, and I could not feel better," Morata told Marca. "I love the city and my teammates. I have been well received and feel great physically. It's the best place that I could have ended up.

"Playing for Real Madrid was a dream, but now I'm at Juventus and ready for a new challenge. Playing for Juve is another dream of mine. I will go step by step to achieve all of my goals.

"Leaving Real Madrid was difficult, but if a team like Juve comes your way and place their trust in you... Let's just say that I could not ask for anything better. The main thing is that I wanted to feel important, so I like how the Coach talks to me a lot. I feel part of the team and useful to the squad."

Morata scored nine times for Real Madrid last season.
