Morata closing in on Juventus move, claims agent

The 21-year-old is said to be edging towards leaving the Spanish capital for Turin – despite reported interest from both Arsenal and Wolfsburg

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is closing in on a move to Italian champions Juventus, according to his agent.

The 21-year-old has been linked with several sides after Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti admitted that the youngster had been left frustrated with his lack of starts for the Spanish side last season.

The player’s agent, Juanma Lopez, spent Monday morning at the Santiago Bernabeu offices and was reported to have told AS that his client had moved “a little closer to Juventus”.

Real Madrid are willing to sell Morata to the Scudetto holders given their plethora of attacking options but are reportedly intent on including a buy-back clause in any deal for the youth academy product.

Morata – who was not chosen to travel to the World Cup in Brazil with the Spain squad this summer – has also been linked with a move to Premier League side Arsenal and German club Wolfsburg in recent weeks.

Morata started just three of Madrid’s Liga games last season but scored eight goals in a total of 23 appearances for the club.
