Juventus have moved to squash claims of Alvaro Morata potentially heading through the exit door amidst interest from his former club Real Madrid and English Premiership side Arsenal. Speaking through the club’s general director Guiseppe Marotta, the Turin giants laughed off claims that Juventus could sell the young Spaniard to Real Madrid by saying that “Morata is one of the club’s most important players.”
Juventus forward line is being led this season by summer arrivals of Paulo Dybala who joined Juventus on a five year deal from Italian side Palermo for an initial fee of €32 Million which could increase with a further €8 Million depending on performance level and former Bayern Munich and Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic who joined the Italian Champions from Atletico Madrid in the summer for a fee reported to be in the region of £13.6 Million. The duo has seen Morata drop down the pecking order; although he has missed just two Serie A matches for the old ladies this season.
Morata is yet to find his scoring boot this season like he did in the last where he score 15 goals in the Serie A for the Italian Champions, but he has only scored 3 times this term. He is still held in high esteem at the club and Guiseppe Marotta sees him as the pillar and future of Juventus as he is still just only 23 year old.
