Cape Town - Juventus forward Alvaro Morata has admitted that a move to the Premier League would be tempting, but is happy to return to former club Real Madrid.

Los Blancos look set to activate a buy-back clause that would take Morata back to his former club, although there remains the possibility that Real would then immediately sell him on for a profit.

"Hopefully everything will be resolved before then, because it is uncomfortable to be helping your country with phone in hand," Morata told Spanish newspaper AS.

"My wish is to succeed in Madrid, but Madrid have great players and what I want is to play and feel important.

"There are some offers from England that are tempting, not only because of the contract. I think my characteristics mean the Premier League would be a great destination.

"With what I have learned in Italy, if I have the chance to learn something more in England I think it would make me a more complete player.

"I am 23 years old and I want to progress, to play and learn from the best."

The Spaniard scored 12 goals and provided nine assists in 47 appearances for Juventus this season, helping the Bianconeri win the domestic double.

"I have won everything you can win in Italy, I have reached the final of a Champions League, I have created goals and I have grown as a player and a person," he added.

"I think I'm a different player from at Real Madrid - the little guy who went running out at the Bernabeu with all the enthusiasm in the world."
