Reports on internet have emerged about a clause in Alvaro Morata’s contract that might lead Real Madrid into resigning the Spaniard.
The forward joined The Old Lady from Los Blancos last summer on a 5 year contract for a fee of €20 million. However the club from Spain’s capital reserved the right to buy the player back, for €30m in 2016 or €35m in 2017.
Alvaro Morata enjoyed a splendid debut season with the Bianconeri as the player played an important part in Juve’s double last season, especially in their path to the UEFA Champions League Final as Morata scored 5 goals in 11 CL appearances with 3 of them coming in the semi-final and the final.
And if the fresh reports are to be believed, Rafa Benitez is considering bringing the forward back to the Bernabeu given his elliptical development.
According to lawyer Giuseppe Bozzo, who worked on Morata’s transfer to Juventus, the Bianconeri must act quickly if they are to hold onto the forward.
Cited by goal.com and originally speaking to Tuttosport, the lawyer said:
“It was my job to bring him to Turin, while his father worked out the details of the contract,”
“Having become Alvaro’s friend, I can say his desire could well be to stay at Juventus long-term, as he is convinced that they can win the Champions League.
“It’s a complex situation. In my view the next step should be renegotiating the clause with Real Madrid. It is written and can be exercised.
“What the player wants will also have an influence, along with what Madrid want to do with him, but if Juventus want to focus on Alvaro for the next eight to 10 years they must get out of this clause cul de sac.
“It’s also important to note that obviously his transfer value has already gone far above the €35m in the clause.”
The Champions League runner up club may need to renegotiate the terms of his contract, as Morata is emerging as one of Juve’s key player specifically after the departure of club’s man striker Carlos Tevez.
