Atletico Madrid marksman identified by Juventus as Plan B transfer option

Atletico Madrid are planning to revolutionise their squad during the summer, after a disappointing campaign for Diego Simeone’s side. A number of signings will be targeted, and in order to raise the funds of these deals, a number of players will be moved on – one of those could be Alvaro Morata.

Morata started the season in excellent form, but he has since tailed off over the last few months, scoring just once in his last 16 appearances across all competitions. He, Angel Correa and Mephis Depay have all been linked with summer departures, which could suggest that Simeone wants new striker options.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Estadio Deportivo) have reported that Juventus would like to sign Morata for a third time. For now, he is only their backup option, but if a move for Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee fails to come off, they could approach Atleti to discuss a possible operation.

Atletico Madrid are under no pressure to sell Morata, given that his contract runs until 2026. They can command a significant fee, which would tell them to bring in their own targets during the summer.
