The Gazzetta dello Sport report Juventus are considering a deal to buy Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid outright.
Negotiations between the two clubs for the 21-year-old Spanish striker have progressed in recent days, with the player seen as having opted for the move too.
Where Juve and Madrid were reported as talking over an initial loan deal and purchase option worth a total spend of between €20m and €22m, the Gazzetta dello Sport suggest the Bianconeri are considering immediately purchasing the player this summer.
It is understood that Juve are studying an option to pay €18m for Morata’s signature this summer, but that discussions still remain on the terms of Madrid’s buyback option.
Los Blancos are apparently pushing now for an opportunity to repurchase Morata at a set fee of €30m, but Juventus are keen to up that to €40m.
