Juventus set to extend Alvaro Morata loan deal

Mon 31 May 2021 | 7:44

Juventus are reportedly set to extend the loan deal of Atletico Madrid’s striker Alvaro Morata for another season.

The Spain international rejoined the Turin-based club last summer on a season-long loan deal with an option to extend the deal by a further year.

Juve have decided to keep hold of the 28-year-old forward, with the deal set to cost them a further €10 million.

Despite

Juventus

’ failure in Serie A and Champions League, the Spanish striker enjoyed one of his best seasons under

Andrea Pirlo

the last term, scoring 20 goals and providing 12 assists in 44 outings as the Old Lady could only secure the Champions League spot as well as Coppa Italia.

And now with the appointment of

Massimiliano Allegri

as the new manager, the former

Chelsea

and

Real Madrid

forward is hopeful to continue his fine form for the club.

Allegri

and

Morata

were both at the club when Juventus won league and cup doubles in 2015 and 2016, while the Spaniard's goals helped Juventus reach the 2015 Champions League final.

The 28-year-old recently admitted he would like to stay at Juventus for life.

'Everyone knows I would gladly stay here for life if I had the chance, but this is a profession, football is a business and a lot of the time we players don't have much choice,'

Morata told Sky Italia after a draw with Fiorentina in April
