Gianluigi Buffon has conceded that Juventus lost a star in Alvaro Morata, who left for Real Madrid.
The Spain international joined Juventus in 2014 and scored 15 goals in his first season, as he won the serie A and Coppa Italia.
He was linked with a move to Chelsea, but ended up returning to Madrid, where he has scored 18 goals in all competitions.
Buffon admits he misses Morata, who he has great affection for as a player and a person.
“Alvaro had negative thoughts in his last period at Juve,” Buffon told Real Madrid TV.
“We talked a bit about it because he I was sorry for him. He was a guy I loved a lot and wanted to help him, to give him security. He deserved the help of a companion and I have great affection for him.
“His move to Real for me it was a disappointment because we lost a great talent of an age that would allow him to mature and finally to devote himself .
“He could be the best man for Juventus.”
