Morata arrives for Madrid training

Alvaro Morata has turned up for the first day of pre-season at Real Madrid, but a move to Juventus is not far away.

Marca report that the young striker has arrived at Los Blancos’ Valdebebas training ground this morning for the first workout of the new campaign.

But the paper claims that it is just to sign a contract with the club that will see him leave for the Bianconeri.

It is believed that his deal to Turin will include a buy-back option for Carlo Ancelotti’s men set at €35m in two years’ time.

The European champions have asked Morata to put pen-to-paper on a new deal, with his current contract expiring in 2016.

The Santiago Bernabeu outfit are keen to have some hold over the young goalscorer when he returns to the club.

Morata will then be allowed to leave for the Serie A giants for €18m, on what is essentially a two-year loan.
