Football: Juventus sign Atletico forward Alvaro Morata on one-year loan deal
MILAN (REUTERS) - Juventus have signed Spain striker Alvaro Morata on a one-season loan from Atletico Madrid for €10 million (S$16 million), the Italian champions said on Tuesday (Sept 22).. Read more at straitstimes.com.
The agreement also gives Juve an option to buy the 27-year-old at the end of the season for €45 million to be paid over three years, the Turin club added.They could otherwise take him on loan again for the 2021-22 season for another €10 million fee and then buy him outright in 2022 at a reduced cost of €35 million.
Morata returns to the club where he spent two seasons between 2014 and 2016, including scoring in the Champions League final loss to Barcelona in Berlin in 2015.He spent just one season with Atletico, who had initially loaned him from Chelsea but then bought him outright in July last year at a reported fee of €65 million.
Morata moved to Juve originally from Real Madrid and netted 27 goals in 93 games over two seasons.He went back to Real in mid-2016 but then joined Chelsea after one season.His latest move comes days after an abortive bid by Juventus to sign Luis Suarez from Barcelona and allows the Turin giants to rest 35-year-old talisman Cristiano Ronaldo more regularly.
Juve, who are chasing a 10th successive Serie A title this season, visit AS Roma on Saturday although that match could come too early for Morata to feature. Read more: The Straits Times »
