Born in Madrid, Morata signed for local and national giants Real Madrid in 2008 from neighboring Getafe CF, finishing his formation two years later but starting appearing for Real Madrid C still as a junior. In July 2010, after a successful season with the Juvenil A where he won two youth titles and scored 34 goals, he was promoted to the B-team. Later that month, first team coach José Mourinho took the player alongside four teammates to a preseason tour in United States. Morata was called by the Spanish under-17 team for the 2009 FIFA World Cup in Nigeria, playing four matches and scoring two goals for the third-placed team.
