Barcelona are lining up Morata as an alternative to Lewandowski

Fri 13 May 2022 | 18:59

According to sources in Spain, Barcelona has lined up Juventus forward Alvaro Morata as a backup plan if they fail to sign Robert Lewandowski.

In January, the Catalan club was extensively connected with a move for

Alvaro Morata

, but they ultimately decided to go in a different direction and sign

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

from Arsenal.

There are a number of rumors circulating in Germany that suggest

Robert Lewandowski

could quit

Bayern Munich

to join Barca. However, any move for Poland forward would be expensive, despite the fact that he has less than a year remaining on his current contract.

According to reports from AS, Xavi, the manager of Barcelona, has been in communication with former Real Madrid forward Morata since January. Xavi views Morata as a more realistic potential for the club.

Any transaction involving Morata would be complex due to the fact that the Spain forward's loan term with Juventus from Atletico Madrid is set to expire in the summer, at which point he would be returning to the capital city of Spain.

Because of this,

Barcelona

would need to negotiate with their La Liga rivals

Atletico Madrid

in order to recruit him. In addition, Morata was featured in the introduction of Juve's 2022-23 kit on Friday, which indicates that it is likely that he will remain there the following season.
