Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Spaniard urged those at the club to 'turn the page' following the summer departure of the man who plundered 36 league goals last term, before joining rivals Juventus.

"The departure of Higuain? His sale has allowed us to take different players who have improved a team was already very good last year.

The World Cup qualifier kicks off at the Juventus Stadium in Turin tomorrow at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

“I don’t have a clear memory of the Euro 2016 meeting, as I cannot yet have that mental clarity to see it without the adrenaline attached,” said Buffon in a Press conference.

Morata looks forward to Azzurri reunion

Alvaro Morata has spoken about the Italy squad before the Azzurri take on Spain this Thursday. 

He thanked his former Juventus team-mates for “treating me incredibly well” and doesn’t believe that Giorgio Chiellini’s suspension will hurt Italy too much when they take on Spain later this week.

The striker was reminded by La Gazetta dello Sport that Chellini will not feature after his red card vs Israel last month, an automatic ban meaning he will not be eligible for the meeting with La Roja.

No January return for Morata

Alvaro Morata has laughed off a suggestion that he could return to Juventus in January.

He went on to praise the Gonzalo Higuain-Paulo Dybala partnership, calling the duo “two great players.”

"It's the first time I've heard such a thing. It’s unthinkable,” he told La Gazetta dello Sport.

”That said, it’s clear that I hope that Juve always wins, I’m still very much a Juventino and and I always will be, but I do not think I’ll go back.

We meet again...

Italy and Spain have been battling on the football field for over 80 years and Adam Digby is looking forward to another tussle.

Just 101 days have passed since Italy registered their last competitive win over Spain, breaking a run of poor results against La Furia Roja that stretched back all the way to the 1994 World Cup. Goals from Giorgio Chiellini and Graziano Pellè not only saw the Azzurri notch up a 2-0 victory, but they also arguably ended their opponent’s recent domination of European football.

Morata back to Juve?

Alvaro Morata is being linked with a shock return to Juventus from Real Madrid in January.

The 23-year-old enjoyed a two-year stay with the Serie A champions before Los Blancos exercised their right to buy the forward back in the summer.

He has featured in all of Zinedine Zidane’s side’s matches so far this season, but this has not stopped Tuttosport suggesting that Morata could be in line to return to Juventus Stadium.
