Why Juventus might opt against maintaining Morata for next season

Alvaro Morata has been on the move since he first made a name for himself at a young age. The attacker came up through Real Madrid's youth system before joining Juventus for the first time in 2014.

Los Merengues chose to use their buy-back option after two strong seasons, only to sell the player again, this time to Chelsea.

But, after two disappointing spells with West London and Atletico Madrid, Morata was overjoyed to return to the Old Lady in 2020.


The 28-year-old is at his best in Turin, but his future with the Italian club is up in the air. The first loan arrangement cost Juventus ten million euros, and it was renewed for another season at the same price.

However, at the end of the current season, Atletico will demand 35 million euros in order to collect a total of 55 million euros, failing which, the Spaniard's time at the Allianz Stadium may come to an end once more.

According to Calciomercato, the Bianconeri may be obliged to part with their striker to make room for other players.

Juventus will be required to purchase Federico Chiesa, Manuel Locatelli, and even Moise Kean by the conclusion of the season.

The Old Lady, on the other hand, will not be forced to purchase Morata under the terms of the agreement, which gives the Italian club the option to do so.

It remains to be seen whether Atletico Madrid is willing to drop the price, as it would be extremely difficult for Juventus to buy Morata for such a high price with the other players stated above, especially given the present financial crisis.
