Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has asked his agent to help him find a new club after becoming disillusioned under manager Zinedine Zidane, according to Manu Carreno of Spanish Radio Station Cadena Ser (via AS).

The Spaniard returned to the Bernabeu in the summer for €30million after the Spanish side triggered a buyback clause in his contract with Juventus. The forward was under the impression from Zidane that he would be used regularly by Real this season but he has seen his game reduced as the campaign has progressed.

Carreno reports that Morata feels betrayed by Zidane as he feels the Frenchman has broken assurances that he would be used regularly. The 24-year-old is reportedly wanting to leave the Bernabeu if Zidane stays in charge. Spanish newspaper AS say that three clubs: Arsenal, Chelsea and former club Juventus will be particularly interested in this news.

Earlier in the week, Spanish publication Diaro Gol reported that Madrid have placed a €60million price tag on Morata, and will allow the Spaniard to leave if he wishes but only if the asking price is met.

Morata has been in good goalscoring form for Real Madrid despite his lack of game time. In 11 starts, he has scored nine goals for the Champions League holders this season.
