Carvajal has no hard feelings, since Morata – who left Madrid's youth system and won two Champions League titles, as well as a pair of LaLiga trophies, among others – approaches Athletic.

"They are the decisions of every player. I do not judge him," Realva's side Carvajal told reporters after Sunday's 4-2 victory over Espanyol.

"If he's happy at Atletico, I'm happy for him. He's my friend and I wish him the best.

"I'm happy for him because in England he did not have many opportunities

"We just hope he does not have a good game against us [On February 9]"
