Morata not thinking about Real Madrid return, insists agent

The striker has been linked with a move back to the Santiago Bernabeu, but he is focused on the Serie A champions at this stage

Alvaro Morata’s agent Juanma Lopez has stressed that the Juventus striker is not thinking about a potential return to Real Madrid.

The 22-year-old left Madrid for the Serie A champions in the summer of 2014 after failing to secure regular first-team action at the Santiago Bernabeu side and has since become a valued member of Massimiliano Allegri’s squad.

The Champions League holders have an option to buy back Morata for a set fee of €30 million at the end of the 2015-16 or 2016-17 campaign, though, and a number of recent reports suggested Madrid are keen to lure him back to La Liga.

Nevertheless, Morata’s representative has made it clear that the young attacker is focused on Juventus for now.

“All I can say about it at this moment is that Alvaro is happy at Juventus and is only thinking about Juventus,” the striker’s agent told Calciomercato.

“Madrid are keeping a close eye on his development, but he is only thinking about Juventus.”

Morata has netted five goals in 17 Serie A appearances so far this term.
