Juventus Debating Morata Deal with Atletico Madrid and FIFA

Juventus are increasingly keen on keeping Alvaro Morata for next season. The striker has been rejuvenated by the arrival of Dusan Vlahovic. He has rediscovered his scoring touch lately as well. The Bianconeri are in talks with Atletico Madrid to limit the monetary hit of a permanent acquisition. They are also in contact with FIFA to assess the new restrictions on loans.

After spending €20M in the past two seasons, the Old Lady would have to pay €35M to buy out the striker, as per the previous agreement with Atletico Madrid. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus want to lower the Morata fee to at least €25M. The Colchoneros are lukewarm on the proposition. However, the two sides have a good relationship and are discussing potential workarounds.

The Spanish club is looking to adequately cash in on the departure. They acquired the forward from Chelsea for €53M in 2020. They do not want to register a loss on the transfer. The two outfits are mulling over a new loan spell to help each other’s finances, the publication informs.

On the other hand, FIFA recently imposed a cap on such instrument starting from the summer. Multi-year temporary spells will no longer be allowed. However, there could be a waiver for pre-existent deals. The parties are gathering intel on the matter, and it will take time. On top of the chemistry with his teammates, Juventus favor Morata over other options also because they would save taxes on his salary due to some fiscal advantages.
