Alvaro Morata surprised his longtime girlfriend Alice Campello with a marriage proposal on stage. The lovebirds attended a magic show from El Mago Pop but she was unaware of his love antics.
The Real Madrid star reached an agreement with the magician without his sweetheart’s knowledge.
Later on, they were invited on stage where the former Juventus star popped the question.
The magician fooled Campello into thinking he was about to perform his usual abracadabra. He told the footballer’s girlfriend: “This will be the best trick you have ever seen in your life.”
Campello realized something magical had actually happened – though far from her expectations, when she turned around and saw her boyfriend kneeling down with an engagement ring in his hands.
The 24-year-old striker took to Twitter to express his excitement after the event.
He posted a picture of his girlfriend with the ring, and captioned it with the following words: “She said yes! We’re getting married! I love you @alicecampello.”

The picture has since received over 160,000 likes on Instagram.
Morata made the list of selected Madrid players who will start against Deportivo on Saturday night.
He won the 2014 Champions League trophy with Real Madrid before moving over to Juventus for a €20 million transfer fee.
Morata won the Serie A and Coppa Italia in both of his seasons. His buy-back clause was activated for his return to Los Blancos for €30 million.
