Alvaro Morata has hinted at an exit from Juventus and has put Premier League clubs on alert. He is keen on getting his future resolved and is uncomfortable with the uncertainty surrounding his career.
Striker’s former club, Real Madrid has a buy-back option of £23.6 million in his contract. It is anticipated that the Spanish club might take the opportunity to do so in the upcoming summer transfer window.
However, the intention to buy Morata back from Juventus might purely happen for business purpose. Seeing that the Spain international is a wanted man in the market, Madrid might see it as an opportunity to buy him and then sell him at a much higher price.
The Bernabeu club can get a decent profit, considering clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are all interested in signing the Spanish forward.
All of these clubs are eager to resolve their attacking problems on the field, an area they have seemed to struggle almost all season. Arsenal who have had striker woes ever since the departure Van Persie in 2012 need a major influential signing to make an impact.
Wenger had Morata on the radar but has never made an official move. The 23-year-old has now revealed that he is open to options as long as he gets a permanent move to a club.
He stated he is happy at Turin but wants his situation resolved. Speaking to Cadena Cope, he said, ‘I can’t wait for the question of the re-purchase to be resolved. I’m happy in Turin, but I want to be able to know where I should buy a house. I want to know as soon as possible where I’ll be.’
‘I’m happy at Juventus, but returning to Madrid is a real possibility because there’s a contract, it was all already written. I just want all of this to be resolved.’
Jose Mourinho, is also reportedly wanting to sign Morata. The former Chelsea manager who is expected to take over from Louis van Gaal at Manchester United at season’s end, could also push United to sign him.
The Portuguese has already started to make a list of possible team improvements he can make from the summer market, and Alvaro seems to be on the list.
Morata has made six appearances for his national side, and wants to be a regular starter for Spain in the upcoming Euro 2016.
