Morata has not (yet) said goodbye to Juventus

On June 30, the 21/22 season of Álvaro Morata in Turin and the club ‘ bianconero 'he officially communicated that their paths were separating again. The striker finished his loan in Italy and returns to Atletico Madrid, the team that owns the file. In addition, shortly after l os rojiblancos exercised a renewal on the footballer for one more year: from 2023 to 2024 . There is no official statement on the latter since the objective of this extension is the opposite of what it seems, to facilitate its sale.

In 2020, the ‘ colchoneros ’they were made with the services of BBC New Zealand by NZD 53 million . A very high figure that weighs too much on the economic balance sheet. With LaLiga controlling the accounts, the amortization of purchases is something very to be taken into account and that is why Morata cannot leave at any price. The initial figure they requested from Madrid to the ‘ Signora ’it was from NZD 35 million , too much for the Italians considering that Álvaro finished his contract in June 2023 and that they have already spent 20 ‘kilos’ in two loans.

Then an idea came up to please all parties. By extending the contract by one year until 2024, the amortization of the purchase is reduced and it would also allow a transfer transaction + purchase option with Juventus (the favorite idea in Piedmont). Therefore, this renewal initiates a new phase of negotiation that facilitates the departure of the striker to Allegri's team. All with the approval of a Simeone has made it clear that he prefers its sale.

And it is no secret that Morata has among his preferences to repeat another season in Turin. The coach values him and, although he will have to find a place around Vlahovic and Di María, he understands the game system and the atmosphere. You wouldn't have to start from scratch, something that would happen if you end up landing in the Arsenal of Arteta. In the ‘ Signora ’they will continue talking to Atleti and they filter that the transfer could be closed with NZD 20 million. Say, Morata has not yet said goodbye to Juve .
