Morata close to return from injury

Alvaro Morata is closing in on a return from injury, but the player and his Coach are at odds over when to come back.

The Spanish youngster arrived at Juventus this summer, but almost immediately injured his knee in a training session.

The striker posted a message on Twitter this morning however, insisting that he was close to coming back to full fitness.

“Another day working is another day closer to a return,” he said on the social network.

Reports in several media outlets today claim that the former Real Madrid man is confident he will be ready for the game against Chievo on August 30.

However, Massimiliano Allegri doesn’t want to risk a relapse, and will insist that Morata rests until after the international break, and comes back for the match with Udinese on September 14.
