€100m Morata buy-out clause

Among the “many complicated clauses” in Alvaro Morata’s Juventus contract is reportedly a €100m buy-out.

The striker completed his transfer from Real Madrid for €20m on Saturday, though the Spaniards have the option to buy him back from 2015-16.

That sum varies depending on how many games Morata plays for the Bianconeri, but is a maximum of €30m.

When asked about the details of this complex deal, Juve general manager Beppe Marotta would only say there were “many complicated clauses.”

According to Sky Sport Italia, that includes a buy-out clause worth €100m.

This, however, is only active for the first year of his contract and €30m of it would go to Real Madrid.

The above picture posted by the official Juventus Twitter account prompted jokes in Italian media due to the sheer size of the contract Morata was signing, a far cry from the usual couple of pages players are photographed with.
