Morata ‘only thinking about Juve’

Alvaro Morata has insisted that he is only thinking about Juventus, amidst talk of a return to Real Madrid in the summer.

Reports in Spain last week suggested that Los Blancos inserted first options into the striker’s Bianconeri deal and were considering the possibility of buying him back for €30m at the end of the season, but the 22-year-old is not aware of any such clauses.

“The fans of all great teams are demanding, but here the crowd is amazing,” he began to Cadena SER.

“[Gianluigi] Buffon and [Andrea] Pirlo don’t get whistled because they’re playing very well and it’s virtually impossible [for them to be whistled].

“I hope [Madrid] win everything in Spain, but if we meet in the Champions League, I want Juve to beat them. They’re a great team and will fight for every title.

“[Paul Pogba and I] have spoken more about the mutual friends we have, rather than anything else.

“We like to discuss the youth teams in Spain and France. He’s a star, both as a person and player, and has no limits [as to what he can achieve].

“I’m working hard [to get noticed by La Roja], it’s my objective. A call-up to any [Spain] squad is special. There’s nothing better.

“I have a contract with Juventus, I’m happy here and only thinking about black and white. I’m not thinking about anything else.

“I don’t care [about any clauses in my contract].”

Morata joined Juve for €22m last July and has scored eight goals in 26 appearances so far this season.
