Who is Alvaro Morata?

Lvaro Borja Morata Martin, a Spanish professional football player for Atlético Madrid in La Liga and the Spain national team, was born on October 23, 1992.

He started his career at Real Madrid, where he made his senior squad debut in late 2010. He went to Juventus for €20 million in 2014 after winning the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League, where he won the Serie A and Coppa Italia double in each of his two seasons.

He won another La Liga title and the UEFA Champions League in 2016–17 after Real purchased him back for €30 million, and he then joined Chelsea in 2017 for a club-record fee of roughly £60 million. He made a loan move to Atlético Madrid in January 2019, and on July 1, 2020, he became a permanent member of the team. In 2020, Morata returned to Juventus on loan.

Morata’s playing style throughout his youth led to comparisons to Real Madrid and Spain’s Fernando Morientes. His pace, intensity, physicality, and work rate on the field made him stand out during his first season at Juventus, and he also scored numerous significant goals with his skill, opportunism, heading ability, and positional knowledge.

Morata is a versatile and well-rounded attacker who has experience playing out wide on the flank as well as in the center of the attack.

At the youth level, Morata played 34 times for Spain and contributed to the nation’s victory in the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship. In addition to playing for Spain at UEFA Euro 2020 and UEFA Euro 2016, he earned his senior debut in 2014.

On October 23, 1992, in Madrid, Spain, this middle-class football player from Spain was born. Alfonso Morata is his father, and Susana Martin Ramos is his mother. Alvaro is the family’s sole son and the lastborn. Marta Abril Morata Martin is his older sister.

Alfonso Morata and Susana Martin Ramos, his parents, urged him to pursue a career in medicine and surgery. They believed that education was superior to football. Alvaro, though, had a strong passion for football and had always aspired to play professionally. When he was 13 years old and playing for Atletico Madrid, he began his youth career.

Alvaro Morata grew up knowing his characteristics, talents, and interests. Even at a tender age, his inner happiness was all about football. It became the foundation for his whole life as we see it today.

Morata completely shaved his head in March 2014 to show his support for sick kids. He said, “Kids with cancer wanted to have my haircut but they couldn’t, so I gave myself theirs.”

His engagement with his Italian girlfriend Alice Campello took place on December 10, 2016, and they were married in Venice on June 17, 2017. In honor of their twin sons Alessandro and Leonardo, who were born on July 29, 2018, the footballer at Chelsea altered his uniform number from 9 to 29. Edoardo, the couple’s third son, was born on September 29, 2020.

The 29-years-old Spanish is 74inches tall and weighs about 84kg. He is active on social media and has got 17.2 million followers on his Instagram.

The Career of Alvaro Morata

After beginning his career at Atlético Madrid, Morata joined Real Madrid in 2008 from neighboring Getafe. As a young player, he played for Real Madrid C. He was promoted to Real Madrid Castilla, Real’s reserve squad, in July 2010 after a great season with the Juvenil A team, where he won two junior championships and scored 34 goals. Morata and four of his colleagues traveled to the United States for preseason play later that month, accompanied by first-team boss José Mourinho.

Morata made his Castilla debut on August 15, 2010, in a friendly game against Alcorcón, and he scored the game’s lone goal. He made his Segunda División B debut on August 29 in a 3-2 victory over Coruxo, and on October 31 in a 1-1 draw with Alcalá, he scored his first goal in the competition.

Morata made his first appearance for the first team on December 12, 2010, when he replaced Angel Di Maria in the 88th minute of a 3-1 La Liga victory at Real Zaragoza. Ten days later, he made his Copa del Rey debut, once more coming off the bench for the final few minutes.

In a 7-1 victory over Deportivo Fabril on February 13, 2011, Morata recorded the first hat-trick of his professional career. Castilla concluded his rookie campaign as a senior with 14 league goals, tied for the team lead with Joselu, although he was denied promotion to the play-offs.

On November 11, 2012, Morata scored his first goal against Levante for Real’s first squad. He entered the game in the 83rd minute and scored the game-winning goal in just 60 seconds.

On March 2, 2013, Morata participated in the entire game of El Clásico against Barcelona, helping Karim Benzema score the game’s first goal in the home team’s 2-1 victory. He joined the first team regularly the next year under new manager Carlo Ancelotti, although during the January transfer window he indicated a desire for greater playing time.

Morata’s first UEFA Champions League goal came on March 18, 2014, as the third goal in a 3-1 victory over Schalke 04 at the Santiago Bernabéu during the round of 16. He scored two late goals against Espanyol on May 17 in the final match of the league season to help Real win 3-1 at home and end with eight goals overall.

He also played a role in the team’s victory over Atlético Madrid in the UEFA Champions League Final, taking Benzema’s place for the final ten minutes of regulation and extra time.

On July 19, 2014, Juventus revealed that they had agreed on a deal with Real Madrid for the sale of Alvaro Morata for a cost of €20 million. Morata signed a five-year contract, with Real Madrid having the option to repurchase him in the future.

On September 13, he made his Serie A debut after coming on in place of Fernando Llorente for the last seconds of a 2-0 home victory over Udinese. Two weeks later, he again replaced his compatriot and scored his first goal for his new team as they defeated Atalanta 3-0.

In a 3-2 victory over Roma at home on October 5, 2014, Morata entered the game as a replacement and was later dismissed for a foul on Kostas Manolas, who had already been dismissed for reacting angrily. On November 9th, he scored twice in a 7-0 home victory over Parma, and Llorente, who replaced him after 71 minutes, added two more goals.

Real Madrid used their buy-back option to re-sign Morata from Juventus for €30 million on June 21, 2016. His debut in a match took place on August 9 in the 2016 UEFA Super Cup, where he started a 3-2 victory over Sevilla and was substituted by Benzema after 62 minutes. On August 27, he scored his first goal in a 2-1 victory over Celta at home.

On July 19, 2017, Chelsea declared that they had reached a transfer agreement with Real Madrid for Morata, reportedly for a club-record sum of almost £60 million. He passed his medical exam on July 21 and formally joined Chelsea as a player.

In the 2017 FA Community Shield match against Arsenal, Morata made his professional debut. He entered the game as a substitute in the 74th minute, and his team ultimately lost on penalties after tying 1-1 during regulation time. Morata was unsuccessful in the shootout.

In his first Premier League match, a 2-3 loss at home to Burnley on August 12, 2017, he not only scored but also assisted David Luiz. His goal, a header in the 69th minute of play, reduced the deficit to 3-1. He became the 17th Chelsea player to record a hat trick in the Premier League on September 23 when he completed his first hat trick for Chelsea in a 4-0 away victory over Stoke City.

On November 5, 2017, Morata scored in his old employer Mourinho’s Manchester United’s 1-0 home loss. On December 26, he increased his league total to ten goals after contributing to Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion at Stamford Bridge.

In a third-round FA Cup replay victory against Norwich City on January 17, 2018, Morata received two bookings—one for diving and the second for dissent. He was then dismissed from the game.

His 15 goals across all competitions helped the Blues finish fifth in the league table at the end of his rookie season.

After 12 years, Morata returned to Atlético Madrid on January 27, 2019, signing an 18-month loan agreement with the team. On February 3, he played in his first league game, a 0-1 road loss to Real Betis. On February 24, he scored his first goal in a 2-0 victory over Villarreal at home.

Morata’s permanent transfer from Chelsea to Atlético Madrid was announced on July 6, 2019, and he will formally join the team on July 1, 2020, for an estimated £58 million cost.

On March 11, 2020, Morata entered the game as a late substitute in extra time of the Champions League’s last 16-second leg away to the reigning champions Liverpool. He scored the game’s final goal in a 3-2 away win, winning the tie 4-2 on aggregate, and securing his team’s qualification to the quarterfinals of the competition.

On 22 September 2020, Morata returned to Juventus on a €10 million, a one-year loan with a €45 million buyout option. Juventus retains the option to extend the loan for an additional year for an additional €10 million; in this scenario, the option to purchase would be worth €35 million.

On September 27, he made his debut appearance for the team in a 2-2 away draw against Roma in Serie A. He scored his first goal for the team in a 1-1 away tie with Crotone on October 17 after his comeback.

On 15 June 2021, Morata’s loan with Juventus was extended until 30 June 2022.

Morata was chosen for the Spain under-17 team to compete in the 2009 U-17 World Cup in Nigeria. Spain placed third, and Morata played four matches and scored twice. He then played for the under-19s in the Japan International Tournament, aiding Spain’s second-place finish behind the hosts.

Morata was selected for manager Vicente del Bosque’s senior team on November 7th in preparation for games against Germany and Belarus. At a 3-0 victory over Belarus on September 15 in Huelva for the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifiers, he made his debut, taking Isco’s place for the final ten minutes.

On March 27, 2015, in the same competition, he scored his first goal for a senior national team, the lone goal in a victory over Ukraine in Seville.

Following what The Guardian referred to as “an unimpressive season at Chelsea,” Morata was left off of Spain’s 23-man World Cup finals roster on May 21.

He was added to Luis Enrique’s 24-man squad for UEFA Euro 2020 on May 24, 2021. Morata scored the first goal in Spain’s 19 June match against Poland in their second group game of the competition, which ended in a 1-1 tie.

On June 28, Morata scored Spain’s fourth goal of the round of 16 of the Euro 2020 tournament against Croatia in the 100th minute of play, leading to a 5-3 victory. He scored an equalizing goal against Italy in the semifinals, sending the game into extra time and ultimately a penalty shootout.

Spain was eliminated after losing the shootout 4-2, despite Gianluigi Donnarumma saving his penalty. However, with his goal against Italy being his sixth in the European Championship, he surpassed Fernando Torres’ previous record of five goals in the competition to become Spain’s leading scorer. He is expected as a key player for Spain in World Cup 2022.
