Morata says Real Madrid stars did not cause Ronaldo's move to Juventus

- Morata believes his former teammate did not cause Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid

- The Portugal international made a €100million move Juventus in the summer

- The Chelsea striker has been recalled to Luis Enrique tutored Spanish team

Spanish striker Alvaro Morata has said he does not believe Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Juventus was prompted by tensions with his former team-mates.

The Portuguese talisman completed a €100million move to the Turin giants, describing the club as "different" and suggesting "everyone is very friendly, the fans too, like a family".

Many felt there was foul-play in the transfer believing the 33-year-old may have grown unhappy at the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo's relationship with president Florentino Perez and some others at the club had come under scrutiny, but Morata does not believe the ex-Manchester United star was referencing any issues with the Madrid players.

"There are different ways of speaking about Madrid. I think with 'family', it wasn't referring to the dressing room," the Chelsea striker told Cadena Ser.

"I think he left Madrid not because he didn't get on well with his team-mates or because there wasn't a good atmosphere, because anyone who saw the rondos at Madrid [saw] it was like that all day.

"But he will have his things, which I'm not getting into. One day, maybe he'll tell the story."

Seeking to change the subject from what may have triggered Ronaldo's switch, Morata added jokingly: "Did you mean Florentino? We're running out of time..."
