Real Madrid plan to re-sign Alvaro Morata this summer

Football News

Real Madrid have decided to spend €32 million on bringing Alvaro Morata back to the Bernabeu from Juventus this summer.

This is according to Marca, who understand the Spanish giants will activate their buy-back option on the 23-year-old.

However, it’s not certain if Real Madrid will keep the Spain international, or whether they’ll make the purchase purely for profit. Los Blancos, according to the report, believe they could sell Morata for €50 million - making them a tidy €18 million should they decide to cash in for a second time.

The reason Morata left Real Madrid in the first place was because he wanted first-team football. That and the fact Juventus offered the Spanish giants €20 million - and a buy-back option - in order to complete the deal in July 2014.

Marca speculate that both Manchester United and Liverpool could be interested in signing Morata this summer.

Mourinho is a fan of Morata

They claim that Jose Mourinho, who has reportedly agreed a deal with the Red Devils, has always liked the characteristics of the striker and could bring him to Old Trafford if he is confirmed as Louis van Gaal’s successor.

But the Premier League giants will face competition from their fierce domestic rivals Liverpool, who could sell the injury-prone Daniel Sturridge after it emerged that he is ready to leave Anfield this summer.

Disappointing season for Morata - so far...

Morata made an impact during his first season at Juventus - scoring 15 goals in all competitions, including one in the Champions League final - but has flattered to deceive so far this term.

In 21 Serie A matches, Morata has found the back of the net on just three occasions.

It’s hard to envisage him displacing the world-class Karim Benzema, who has scored 18 goals in La Liga alone this season.
