The Atletico forward may stay in Turin next season. The Italians prefer to extend the lease of the 28-year-old Spaniard.
Turin’s Juventus are set to begin talks with Atletico Madrid over the future of Alvaro Morata. According to Spanish and Italian media, the Italian club wants to extend the Spanish player’s lease for another season and is ready to pay another 10 million euros for it.
According to Goal.com, Turin’s “Juventus” have made the final decision on its striker.
Juventus, Turin, signed the 28-year-old striker in September last year and paid 10 million euros for him. There is a clause in the agreement with Atletico that allows the Italian club to ransom Morata.
However, it seems that Juventus would prefer to extend the rent at this stage, and if they negotiate with the Madrid club, they would take care of the player’s redemption after the end of the next season, in the summer of 2022 – for 35 million euros.
Alvaro Morata has defended Juventus in 28 games this season, scoring 13 goals and providing 10 assists. The Spanish striker has a contract with Atletico Madrid until the summer of 2023.
Andrea Pirlo’s team has 42 points in 21 matches in Serie A and is ranked 6th in the tournament table. The reigning champions of Italy play in the 1/8 finals of the Champions League, where they lost the first match against Porto 1: 2.
The new contract with Juve? Buffon is aiming for a big record
43-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is also in talks with Turin’s “Juventus”.
According to journalist Nicolo Schira, the parties are working on a new contract. Gigi is expected to extend the contract for another year.
Currently, Buffon’s main goal is to break the record of the legendary Marco Ballotta and gain the status of the oldest goalkeeper in the Italian championship. Currently, this status belongs to Ballotta, who passed away at the age of 44 years and 32 days.
Most likely, Buffon will start today’s match with “Crotone” in the starting lineup.
Buffon has a contract with Juventus until June 30 this year. Buffon has made 9 appearances this season, conceding 5 goals and keeping the door dry 5 times.
