Alvaro Morata Unsure of Future as Juventus Decision Looms

Alvaro Morata equalized the Fiorentina game immediately upon coming off the bench. He bagged his 18 goal of the season, the ninth one in Serie A, while also providing 12 assists in all competitions. Despite the solid campaign and his attachment to the team, he is not certain he will continue to wear the black-and-white jersey next season.

After the game, he told Sky Sport: “I am a professional, and I will give my best until I am here. Everybody knows that I would stay here forever If I were given such a possibility. But football is like a shop, it is business, and often footballers do not get to choose. I am happy here; we can still lift a trophy in May, we have to focus on that without getting distracted.”

He recorded the fastest goal by a sub this season, according to Opta, and celebrated his 250th appearance in the top five leagues Sunday. He has been involved in 18 goals in domestic play so far, and he is one shy of his personal best, registered four years ago at Real Madrid.

Morata has joined Juventus from Atletico Madrid on a €10M season-long loan with a €45M option to buy and a €10M one to extend the temporary spell for another campaign. While the first route is improbable, the second one is more feasible. The Bianconeri will also try to renegotiate the terms of the deal with the Colchoneros, Gazzetta dello Sport reports. In the meantime, they have been looking at other strikers, such as Moise Kean, Arkadiusz Milik, and Mauro Icardi.
