Juve and Madrid to talk about Morata

Juventus and Real Madrid will use tonight’s veterans’ match between the clubs to discuss the transfer of Alvaro Morata.

AS report that representatives from both clubs will be present for the friendly and will attempt to come to an agreement to allow Morata to move to Turin.

The striker has made a deal with the Serie A champions but the transfer won’t go ahead unless the clubs are satisfied. Juve are willing to pay €15m for Morata but Madrid want to include a clause that would allow them to re-sign the Cantera product for €30m in the next two years, something to which Juve aren’t inclined to agree.

AS note that the situation has parallels with Gonzalo Higuain, who had twice agreed terms with Juve only for the clubs to fail to settle on the move and the transfer to break down.

The chances of Madrid getting movement in their pursuit of Artuo Vidal are also said to be slim as Juve Coach Antonio Conte has made the Chilean remaining in Turin as one of his conditions for staying on the Juve bench.
