Atletico Madrid Slated to Take Morata Off the Market

Alvaro Morata has been linked to most Serie A powerhouses this summer, and he’s still lingering as a target for Roma and Inter, but he’s primed to stay put at Atletico Madrid. He already extended his contract earlier this summer, which included a €21M release clause. He’s in advanced talks for another renewal that would ensure he doesn’t depart, Fabrizio Romano informs.

The agreement will be finalized soon. The Colchoneros will add another year to his deal, which will run until 2027. The striker had a meeting with Cholo Simeone and the hierarchy. They convinced him to repel the suitors since they want him as their no.9.

Morata will be formally off the market once he re-ups with Atletico Madrid. José Mourinho not so subtly hinted that he wanted him to shore up his frontline. Simone Inzaghi also reportedly indicated him as an ideal reinforcement.

Inter are now focusing on Folarin Balogun, Beto, and Mehdi Taremi. Instead, the Giallorossi are bargaining with Atalanta for Duvan Zapata. Moreover, they touched base with Juventus for Arkadiusz Milik. They were met with a €15M request, which is too high in their opinion, TuttoSport relays.

Our Take on Morata

The end of the saga is finally nigh. While he’s undoubtedly a valuable contributor, too much virtual ink has been spilled on him. The unimaginative Italian sides will have to come up with new solutions.
