In the past three seasons, Alvaro Morata has played in three different leagues. He’s lived in three different countries. He’s had to do a lot of relocating and some of it, probably, wasn’t really up to him because buyback clauses sometimes end up being something we don’t really like.
Because of that — and probably some major changes happening at Stamford Bridge this summer — there’s bound to be chatter surrounding what Morata’s future in England may be.
As of Tuesday morning, that chatter now includes a possible return to Juventus. Or, at least that’s what the Corriere dello Sport is telling us following a report from Spain just a short time earlier in the day. Juventus want to bring Morata back to Turin and, based on what we heard him say upon his return to Real Madrid two summers ago, it would be something the young Spaniard would not object to if it come to it.
There’s two major things that will prevent this from happening.
- Morata currently makes €8 million a season at Chelsea.
- Chelsea paid a whopping €80 million to sign Morata just last summer.
And with that, we can consider this thing a rumor and probably only a rumor for as long as this whole rumor exists.
As much as it would be great to see Morata back in bianconero next season, Chelsea aren’t so hell bent on success that it will be a one-and-done situation for him at the club after they paid that much money for him less than 12 months ago.
We know that this could very well be a summer of some big changes for Juventus. But one position they may not need much tweaking is in attack. That’s because of the spending that took place last summer where Juve shelled out some big bucks to sign Federico Bernardeschi and will almost certainly be making Douglas Costa’s loan deal permanent. That’s a lot of cash — and it’s without Morata being a Juventus player.
