Real Madrid have reportedly agreed to activate their €32m buyback clause for Juventus striker Alvaro Morata this summer.
According to Marca, Los Blancos believe the striker has made enough progress to resume his career with the club, his two goals against them in the 2014-15 Champions League semi-finals still fresh in the memory.
However, with the ‘BBC’ not ready to be dislodged, the newspaper adds Madrid could make a significant profit on the 23-year-old – to the tune of €18m – if they decide to sell him on to a Premier League side.
Jose Mourinho regularly used Morata during his spell at the Santiago Bernabeu, amidst reports he will become Manchester United’s new manager, making him a reported target for the Red Devils, along with Liverpool.
Morata joined Juventus in the summer of 2014 on a five-year contract for €20m, but Madrid retained two repurchase options in 2016 and 2017.
Los Merengues’ FIFA-imposed transfer ban appeared to deny them the chance of bringing back the forward, but their embargo has since been suspended.
