Morata ‘very happy’ to join Juve

Ahead of his impending move to Juventus, Alvaro Morata says he is ‘very happy’ to be joining the Old Lady from Real Madrid.

It was reported last night that the Serie A champions had agreed a fee in the region of €22m for the young Los Blancos striker, with the completion of the deal now seeming a formality.

“I am very happy, for me it’s about having a personal challenge,” Morata has been quoted as saying by Spanish outlet Marca this morning.

Official confirmation of the 21-year-old’s move to Turin is expected soon, with the player set to be present at Juve’s first day of pre-season training next Monday.
