Florentino Perez has conceded that Real Madrid will talk to Alvaro Morata to discuss whether a move away would be in his best interests.
The youngster has impressed with his first team opportunities handed down at Los Blancos and whilst on international duty with the Spanish Under-21s, but speculation continues to link him with a move away.
Alongside apparent interest from Premier League duo Arsenal and Tottenham has been continued links with Inter and Juventus, and now the quartet can take encouragement from the latest words on the 21-year-old’s availability from Madrid’s President.
“I have to talk to the Coach and Morata to see what is best for everyone,” Perez has told Onda Cero this week.
“For example, what we did with Dani Carvajal was very positive, he left to play.
“For us if we sell someone it is to play, but the best place to do so is Madrid.”
Madrid sold Carvajal to Bayer Leverkusen in 2012 before exercising a buyback clause a year later to bring him back to the Bernabeu.
Perez’s comments on Morata are seen by the Gazzetta dello Sport as set to prompt discussions with Juventus counterpart Andrea Agnelli next Monday, when the duo meet as part of a friendly between sides made up of Madrid and Juventus legends.
