Reports from Romeo Agresti suggest that the Bianconeri will not exercise the option to buy Morata for €35M and push to find a different solution.
Morata arrived at Juventus on 22 September 2020, on a one-year loan worth €10 million, with an option for purchase at €45 million. The Old Lady extended the loan for a further year for another €10 million, making the option for purchase worth €35 million.
Now the deal to make transfer of the 29-year old Spanish striker permanent, is going to expire tomorrow. But the management is hoping to strike a negotiation that would reduce the pre-agreed fees.
Few outlets have also been reporting that if Juve fail to pay the price, they would like to settle on a new loan deal.
As per Giova Albanese – “Atletico currently have frozen Morata. The dialogue could open with Juventus in case of no other offers for the striker. It will be a long negotiation”.
Recent news suggest that Alvaro has conveyed his wish of staying at Juventus to Atletico.The striker prefers Turin to signing for any other club. Moreover Juventus also want to keep Morata since Moise Kean is set to leave the club.
According to Romeo Agresti, Alvaro is part of Allegri’s plans. He will play as a winger and not as a back up to Vlahovic.
Henceforth the possibility of Morata staying at Juventus is very high. Although it would involve an extensive negotiations between the two clubs. Juventus would hope to strike a deal that would be financially friendly. Having Morata at the club would be very beneficial given Chiesa won’t be returning for another few months.
