After Alvaro Morata's Transfer to Atletico Madrid, Here Are Other Stars Who Moved To Rival Clubs.

Chelsea forward, Alvaro Morata's move to Atletico Madrid has opened up a can of worms for fans in the Spanish capital. He has come through the ranks from the Real Madrid Youth Academy and a transfer to age-old city rivals is honestly not a heartwarming update for Madridistas.

For most of you who must have forgotten, Morata's first team as a professional player was Real Madrid. Yes, he did play in Atletico's youth program but then joined Real's academy in 2008, eventually playing in their first team.

The Madrid derby is slated for February 9 and we won't blame the fans if there are loud boos every time Morata touches the ball. So, how does he deal with this situation, you ask. For starters, he can seek some inspiration from these other superstars who joined rival clubs and went on to definitely. 

1. Robin Van-Persie (Arsenal to Manchester United)

RvP became one of the deadliest strikers in the Premier League in his last couple of years at Arsenal. Credit goes to none other than Arsene Wenger, who developed the Dutchman into a leader after Thierry Henry's departure. With time Van Persie matured into a complete striker and was also handed over the captain's armband after the departure of Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona.

But in 2012, when trophies didn't come by at the Emirates, the Dutchman refused to sign a contract extension. Just then, Manchester United's then manager, Sir Alex Ferguson lured him to sign for Manchester United with the promise of trophies.

Van Persie joined Manchester United for £24 million in 2012 after bagging back to back golden boots. He would be influential in guiding the Red Devils to the Premier League title by scoring 26 goals in the process. Though he had infuriated the Arsenal fans, van Persie did not care as he had finally won the league in his first season at his new club and even received a guard of honour from his former colleagues.

2.  Luis Figo (Barcelona To Real Madrid)

After Florentino Perez became the club president of Real Madrid in 2000, he launched the famed Galacticos era at Santiago Bernabeu by signing at least one star player every summer. Luis Figo, who was one of the best players in the world, was signed from sworn enemies Barcelona for a world record transfer fee. 

Figo had spent five years with the Catalans and was revered by their fans. However, it was an under the table move as it took place without any player at the club really knowing about it. It broke Catalan hearts when the Portuguese decided to join the arch-rivals in such a controversial manner.

3. Carlos Tevez (Manchester United to Manchester City)

As per reports, Carlos Tevez didn't really want to leave Manchester United. Carlos Tevez was adored by Manchester United fans after proving instrumental in the club's Champions League-winning 2007-08 campaign during a two-year loan spell.

But with time, the relationship between Tevez and Alex Ferguson started to crumble when the 34-year-old made some jarring remarks regarding his future in an interview with a UK newspaper. Eventually, Tevez signed for Manchester City and immediately took a dig at Fergie, claiming that the Scot didn't want him at Old Trafford.

Responding to which, Ferguson said that Tevez wasn't worth the money City paid for him (around £25.5m, if his advisors are to be believed). But proving Fergie wrong, the Argentine scored 52 goals in his first two seasons at the Etihad.

4. Luis Enrique (Real Madrid To Barcelona)

Luis Enrique played almost half of his career at Real Madrid. The former Barcelona manager had spent eight years in the whites of Real Madrid. Despite that, Enrique could never become an integral part of the Los Blancos side, scoring only 18 goals in 213 matches for them.

When he made his move to Barca in 1996, he did so for a free transfer. The midfielder, who was praised for his versatility, would go on to become a regular for Barcelona and was eventually given the captain's armband. Compared to Real, the Spaniard scored 109 goals in 300 matches and also won two La Liga trophies for their El Classico rivals.

5. Sol Campbell (Tottenham to Arsenal)

After coming through Tottenham's youth ranks, Sol Campbell made his debut for Spurs at the tender age of 18. He became a mainstay at the Tottenham centre-back position for years to come and captained them to a League Cup victory in 1999.

But little did they know that the Tottenham star was about to join their fiercest enemies, Arsenal. Despite saying that he would never play for Arsenal in the past, he went on to join the club and is till date named as 'Judas' by the Spurs fans for betraying their club.
