Alvaro Morata Reveals What Diego Simeone Really Said To Him
Did Diego Simeone attempt to tap up Alvaro Morata on the sideline during their Champions League game?
Nope - That's according to Morata.
The Spanish striker continues to be subject to intense transfer speculation as he's heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu.
And it appeared the Atletico boss was doing his best effort to lure him to the other side of Madrid. Check it out for yourself.
But that's not the case.
Real Madrid ran out 3-nil winners against their neighbours as they head to the Vicente Calderon with a commanding lead.
Despite not getting a run-out, Morata made the headlines. Though he's revealed what the Argentine really said to him.

"Simeone had a joke with me, one which had nothing to do with football." He said via 101 Great Goals.
"I know him because he played with [my agent] Juanma Lopez and he asked me for some croissants from the brand I have launched."
So, no tapping up here, just croissant talk.
