Juventus and Spain striker Alvaro Morata says he is ‘tired’ of talking about whether or not Real Madrid will exercise their buy-back clause.
Morata left Madrid for Turin in 2014 but Los Blancos retained the rights to re-sign the youth team product and this summer it has been strongly rumoured they would invoke their option, but Morata is fed up of the speculation.
“Everything I say now will be taken one way or the other. I said which player would not want to go to the best team in the world [Madrid], not that it’s my wish or that I would,” he explained on Al Primer Toque, AS reports.
“It’s clear that everyone, every player, wants to go to play at Real Madrid but I think that if there isn’t the space you need, it isn’t the most appropriate thing.
“I hope this is all [taken care of] as quickly as possible. Honestly, I’m already tired of the subject of repurchase or not repurchase. I want to stop relying on others and only depend on myself. I hope it ends soon.”
If Morata does go back to Santiago Bernabeu he’ll work under Zinedine Zidane, an icon at the Old Lady and Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant when Morata last wore white.
“I was at Juve’s training ground and he came to watch a session, before he was Coach of the first team, and I spoke with him. I’ve always had a good relationship with him and I’m glad he won the Champions League,” Morata revealed.
