Published Add your comment

Real Madrid and Juventus are finalising the transfer of 21-year old Spanish international, Alvaro Morata, in a £22 million deal that will see the striker move to the Serie A champions in a four year deal, as reported by the Marca.

Blow for Arsenal and Wolfsburg

The news will come as a blow to both Arsenal and Wolfsburg, after both clubs had previously enquired about the player.

The Bundesliga side, backed by German car manufacturer Volkswagen, will be more disappointed after having already offered Real Madrid £20 million which was turned down, while Arsenal's apparent signing of Alexis Sanchez will soften the blow for Arsene Wenger and the Emirates faithful.

Buy-back clause

Morata impressed at the Bernabeu last season with nine goals, despite limited opportunities, and he is well down the pecking order in Madrid when you consider that Ancelotti's has Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema at his disposal.

Los Blanco's officials, reportedly stated that they would not stand in the way of the 21-year old following his interest in joining Serie A Champions Juventus, although they were reluctant to cut ties with the player altogether.

As a result, Juventus were more than happy to insert a buy-back clause in the deal, providing Real the opportunity of renewing their relationship with the player down the line.

Champions League football

Morata is born and bred in Madrid, however warming the bench at Real would have halted his development, and the challenge that awaits in Turin not only provides him with the opportunity of first team football with a European heavyweight, but the chance to showcase his skills in the UEFA Champions League.

Class act

Naturally the: "Madrileno," was delighted that the proactive negotiations have gone according to plan, and was delighted with the news.

"I'm very happy. This is a new challenge for me," Morata told the Marca.

The talented striker is due to travel to Turin over the next few days to undergo a medical and officially sign with the: "Old Lady," shortly afterwards.

Antonio Conte's squad is due to arrive back for pre-season on Monday and the Juve manager would like the Spaniard to join as soon as possible.
