Four years after leaving him, Alvaro Morata is back at Juventus in Turin. The Piedmontese club formalized the loan of the Spanish international on Tuesday evening. The Bianconeri had to pay € 10m to benefit from the services of their former striker for a season, with a purchase option that would amount to € 35m.

In Turin, Morata finds Andrea Pirlo. During his first stint at Juve, which saw him score 33 goals in 106 games, he had known him as a teammate. From now on, that will be his trainer. There is no doubt that the latter campaigned in favor of this arrival, while the names of other center forward had circulated on the side of the Allianz Stadium for a few days (Suarez, Dzeko, Kean…).
Atlético have already found Morata’s successor
Morata (27) therefore leaves Atlético Madrid after only two years. His replacement with the Matelassiers would already be found. According to the latest information, the Rojiblancos are about to enlist Luis Suarez. A meeting was reportedly held on Tuesday between Josep Maria Bartomeu and the player’s representatives and both parties would agree to a termination of the contract between them. “El Pistolero” would join Diego Simeone’s team for two seasons and with an annual salary of around € 9 million.
