Atletico Madrid stalwart Koke has taken to the charm offensive welcoming reports of Alvaro Morata‘s rumoured move to his former club where he played with the midfielder in their youth days.
“Morata is a great player, I’ve always said that,” Koke was quoted by Marca
“I played with him in the Atletico academy and then circumstances changed [Morata went to Getafe for one year before joining Real Madrid‘s youth setup].
“It is true that I’ve heard this rumour, but he is not our player; he is Chelsea‘s and we have to respect them.
“Right now, we are the players who are here and we shouldn’t be thinking about players from elsewhere.
“If he comes, he will be welcome.”
