Morata to sort out Madrid future

Juventus striker Alvaro Morata will decide his future next week when he meets with his former employers Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old was sold to Juve in July 2014 for a reported fee of €20m, with Madrid having the option to buy him back in the future, a decision they took several months ago.

Marca reports that the 23-year-old will sit down with his agent and Madrid general manager Jose Angel Sanchez to discuss their intentions, with Morata wanting to know the part he will have to play under Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane next season.

“If he is not the first choice striker then it will be very difficult for Morata to come,” Marca quotes a source close to the player as saying.

Morata is aware that Juventus will not be able to afford the €40m the Spanish giants would demand for his transfer, although the Premier League also offers an alternative as several teams are interested in securing his signature, most notably Chelsea under Antonio Conte next term.

However, a move to Stamford Bridge could depend on whether Diego Costa returns to Atletico Madrid in the summer, but Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Liverpool are all understood to be monitoring his situation.
