In the hectic pace of the transfer market, some uncertainties quickly disappear, while others remain uncertain. In the case of Álvaro Morata, speculation about his future has been a constant in recent months. Despite the doubts that surrounded his stay at Atlético de Madrid during the transfer window, the Spanish striker is still at the mattress club. However, Juventus continues to monitor his situation closely in the hope of completing his signing in the near future.
Álvaro Morata, still in Juventus’ sights
Morata recently agreed to a contract extension with Atlético de Madrid. While this could indicate a long-term commitment, it has generated more speculation than certainty about its future. Despite his contract extension, there is still a possibility that the Spanish striker could move to Serie A during the winter market.
Juventus is an old acquaintance for Morata, as the striker has worn the Bianconera jersey in the past. The Italian club expressed interest in his return during the summer transfer window, but financial complexities prevented any significant progress in negotiations. According to Todo Fichajes, Atlético Madrid have set a price of €20 million for Morata, a figure that Juventus has so far been unwilling to meet.
Juventus are planning for the possible departure of Dusan Vlahovic in January, which would open the door for Morata to return. However, Atlético Madrid have also expressed interest in Vlahovic, which could lead to mutually beneficial negotiations.
Although the figures have not yet been placed in their final location, Juventus and Atlético de Madrid continue to evaluate their market options. Álvaro Morata’s future remains a subject of speculation, and the winter market promises more news and movement in this fascinating chapter of European football.
