Morata: I can’t wait

Alvaro Morata says he can’t wait to head to Turin in order to sign for Juventus from Real Madrid.

The young forward is poised to complete a move to the Old Lady from Los Blancos, for a fee believed to be in the region of €22m.

“I can’t wait to arrive in Turin, people have said to me it’s a beautiful city and I’m looking forward to getting to know it,” Morata is quoted as saying by Marca today.

The 21-year-old will be joining his compatriot and fellow forward at Juve, Fernando Llorente.

“Llorente? I still haven’t spoken to Fernando, but it’s always nice to already know someone if you are arriving in a new dressing room.”
