Alvaro Morata is currently a Real Madrid player officially, after the Los Blancos side triggered his buy-back clause in the contract with Juventus. The 23-year-old scored 27 goals in 93 appearances for the Old Lady since moving to the Juventus Stadium in 2014.
An announcement on Juventus’ website read:
“All associated with Juventus Football Club would like to wish Alvaro the very best of luck wherever his future may take him and thank him for two truly excellent years of service to the team.”
The Spanish International has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United in the race to get his signature.
Morata scored three goals at the Euro 2016 after a ‘not up to par’ display in the first game of the competition before the Spanish side were knocked out.
Real are willing to sell the player to make profit, but the player said he would be cheerful to stay and battle for his place at the Bernabeu, in the event that they chose to keep hold.
In any case, if Real do insist to sell him, reports are overflowing that Morata would want to sign for Chelsea because of the impact of the new Blues manager Antonio Conte. But Real Madrid have verbally agreed with Wenger that they will sell the Spaniard to the Gunners.
Arsene Wenger is keen on bringing another striker to the Emirates and has been also linked with the likes of Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette and Everton forward Romelu Lukaku.
