Alvaro Morata has suffered an early setback in his Juventus career after sustaining a knee injury in training.

The Spanish striker, who left Real Madrid to complete a €20m transfer to the Italian Serie A champions on Saturday, hurt his left knee during a training session at Juve's Chatillon base.

A statement published on the club's official website revealed tests had discovered a sprain to the 21-year-old's knee and said medical staff would continue to monitor his condition throughout Tuesday.
