Madrid youngster heading to Italy after all.
Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata finally looks set to complete his €18m switch to Juventus after the move came under threat when Antonio Conte stepped down on Tuesday, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.
The two clubs agreed a fee last week, but Conte’s sudden departure out the deal in doubt, and there are still question marks hanging over Patrice Evra’s proposed arrival from Manchester United.
However, Morata’s move now seems to be good to go, and the current European champions even sought to install a buy-back clause into the deal meaning that Madrid would get first refusal on his signature should Juventus ever decide to sell, though they would have to pay almost double what why’ve sold him for as the price has been set at €36m.
New coach Max Allegri sought out talks with the Spaniard to assure him that all is well within the camp following his unexpected appointment, and now Morata has reportedly been sold on the move and is keen to wrap up the deal quickly.
Both Liverpool and Arsenal had been keeping tabs on his situation, but they now look set to miss out and turn their attentions elsewhere for some extra firepower.
