More Morata-Juventus details emerge

Alvaro Morata will fly in to Turin tonight and undergo his Juventus medical tomorrow, with new details emerging on the deal with Atletico Madrid.

According to multiple Italian sources, Morata is heading out late this evening from Madrid, having pulled out of his final training session today.

He will then have his medical tests at the Juventus complex on Tuesday morning and sign the contract.

It is expected to be a loan for €10m with option to buy at the end of the season for €45m.

However, there is reportedly another clause allowing the Bianconeri to extend the loan for another €10m for the 2021-22 campaign.

The option to buy in June 2022 would therefore be for €35m.

Morata of course already had a two-year loan at Juventus from 2014-16, in which he scored 27 goals and provided 18 assists in 93 competitive matches.

That loan cost the Bianconeri €20m and Real Madrid activated their buy-back option for €30m in the summer of 2016.

Since then, the 27-year-old has gone on to Chelsea for €66m, then Atletico Madrid for €62m.

Atleti are letting him go because they have agreed terms with Luis Suarez, who is a free agent after terminating his contract with Barcelona.
