Barcelona are still working on a deal for Alvaro Morata despite Juventus’ position on the potential transfer.
It’s pretty clear that those rumours are not far from the mark, and that was proven by Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri’s comments on Wednesday.
Allegri said: “I told Alvaro that he is staying here, he is not leaving Juventus, end of story.”
That appeared – and perhaps still appears – to be the end of it, but according to Diario AS, Barca still consider the case open and they will continue to chase a deal.
It’s claimed Xavi Hernandez has since contacted Morata and there is still hope of a deal.
Juventus are likely to want a top standard replacement to be convinced that it is a good idea to lose Morata.
