Juventus have affirmed themselves as the dominating force in Serie A once again after winning a record fifth successive title.
However, their quest to re-establish themselves among Europe's elite clubs could take a hit this summer with the loss of Alvaro Morata.
Spanish international Morata has been a revelation since signing for the Old Lady, but his brilliance has garnered interest from various quarters.

According to The Guardian, former club Real Madrid are set to exercise their buy-back clause and then sell him on for a substantial profit, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain all monitoring the situation.
Juventus could consider bringing in any one of these three alternatives when the inevitable happens.
Mauro Icardi (Inter Milan)
Currently among the top four goal-scorers in Serie A, Icardi has been a sensation since moving to Inter from Sampdoria and has amassed 52 goals and 15 assists over the course of three years at the San Siro.
A proven entity in Italy, it would be easier for the Argentine to settle quickly alongside compatriot Paulo Dybala. The duo can lead a formidable attack for the Bianconeri.
A creative and tactically intelligent professional, the 23-year-old has a good technique and an eye for goal.
Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)
Arsenal ace Alexis Sanchez is said to be planning a move away from north London after growing tired of the Gunners’ incompetence to challenge for major honours both domestically and in Europe.
Although manager Arsene Wenger wants him to commit his long-term future to the club, the Chilean is stalling over a new deal in order to consider his options.
The Daily Mail report that Juventus are monitoring the situation and could secure the signing in the coming weeks if Sanchez decides to return to Italy.
He has prior experience of Italian football having spent three years at Udinese before moving to Barcelona in 2011.
A quick, skilful player who is often the focal point of attack for his side, Sanchez’s work-rate is commendable, and that would make him invaluable for Juventus.
Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain)
The Uruguay striker enjoyed three hugely successful seasons with Napoli which earned him a mega-money move to French giants Paris Saint-Germain in 2013. Yet, he is said to be ready to quit Parc des Princes this summer.
The Juventus hierarchy would definitely want to sign a player of Cavani’s calibre who, at 29, still has plenty to offer.
Club director Giuseppe Marotta admitted that Cavani would be a viable option should they sell Morata, as per Goal.com.
Despite playing second-fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Cavani has managed to score 80 goals in 144 games in all competitions for the Ligue 1 side during his time at PSG.
The acquisition of the South American would be a fantastic addition that would boost Massimiliano Allegri’s side’s chances of European glory.
