Now that the World Cup 2014 in Brazil is over and done with, we are beginning to see a lot of movement in the Summer transfer windows and, one of the busiest clubs at the moment would have to be Real Madrid, who are seeing a lot of players coming and going. One of the players who has clearly been set to leave the Spanish giants all Summer, is the 21-year-old striker Alvaro Morata.
There have been a number of clubs from all over the world chasing Alvaro Morata but the striker was clearly keen on playing Champions League football next season, which is one of the reasons that he decided to join Juventus. Real Madrid accepted an offer in the region of £16m for Alvaro Morata and the young striker will now play his club football in Italy next season.
Juventus released an official statement which read, "Juventus Football Club can announce that Alvaro Morata has signed a five-year contract with the club after a fee of 20million euros, to be paid over three years, was agreed with Real Madrid. The deal includes the option for Real Madrid to reacquire the player's registration rights at the end of the 2015-16 or 2016-17 campaigns, at predetermined values, up to a maximum of 30million euros. These values will be based on the number of matches played by Morata in the relevant season."
While Alvaro Morata will be hoping to get more first team football at Juventus, he will have the difficult task of displacing either Fernando Llorente or Carlos Tevez for a place in the starting line up. We look forward to seeing how Alvaro Morata adapts to the Italian style over the coming seasons.
