Official: Morata signs for Juventus

Alvaro Morata is officially a Juventus player after completing his medical in a €20m deal with Real Madrid.

The 21-year-old striker flew in to Turin last night and passed all his tests this morning before sitting down to sign the five-year contract.

Juve released a statement confirming the transfer is worth €20m to be paid over three instalments, so more than the expected €18m.

Real Madrid have a buy-back clause in the deal allowing them to take back Morata either at the end of the 2015-16 or 2016-17 campaign.

The cost of the clause depends on how many games Morata plays in a Juventus jersey, but will be up to a maximum of €30m.

Again, this is lower than the oft-reported sum of €35m.
