Morata still wanted by 'top Premier League clubs' – agent

Real Madrid recently activated their buy-back clause to re-sign the striker from Juventus, but the Spain international’s representative says a move to England could still happen

Alvaro Morata is still attracting interest from high-profile Premier League clubs, his agent has revealed.

The Spain international had been linked with a move to England this summer before Real Madrid activated their buy-back clause to re-sign him from Juventus.

However, widespread reports understand Madrid’s reasoning for bringing back Morata could be to make an instant profit on him, sparking fresh rumours of a switch to the Premier League.

And Morata’s agent has fuelled talk by confirming English clubs are still monitoring the marksman’s situation, while adding you will “have to ask Real Madrid” if he will still be there for the 2016/17 season.

“He still has offers from top clubs in the Premier League,” Morata’s agent Juanma Lopez told AS.

“As things stand he is a Madrid player from July 1. Whether he will stay or not, you have to ask Real Madrid.

“We will see. We still have to talk to Zinedine Zidane, but for the moment Morata is happy.”

Morata scored 12 goals for Juventus last season, while he is currently the joint-top goalscorer alongside Wales and Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale at Euro 2016 with three strikes to his name so far.
