Morata, summit in Madrid with Atletico to get the discount

Cherubini meets the Spanish club: Juve’s offer for the redemption is 15 million

Spanish mission for Federico Cherubini, with the aim of making Alvaro Morata’s future less cloudy, even if the solution still seems far away. The Juventus transfer man will meet the management of Atletico to talk about the redemption of the Spanish forward and see if there is room for renegotiating the agreement. Morata arrived at Juventus two summers ago with the formula of the loan with the right of redemption. The bianconeri have already spent 20 million in these two seasons and should add another 35 to keep him, because this is the figure established with the Spaniards.

Downside offer

“The future does not depend on me, but I have many options”, said a few days ago the Juventus number 9 from Spain’s retirement. It is no mystery that he would like to stay and also that Allegri would gladly keep him as deputy Vlahovic (if he wanted to, he can also do the left winger in the trident, as already happened last season), because he considers him reliable on the pitch and a positive element in the locker room. , however, 35 million is considered too much for a 29-year-old forward. Therefore Juventus will try to renegotiate the ransom. So far there have been no openings by the Spaniards, who even if they consider Morata out of the project, do not intend to make a loss. Cherubini will try to convince them with an offer of 15 million euros (plus any bonuses), however very far from the 35 in which Atletico hopes. It is difficult to think of a white smoke immediately. Indeed, it is possible that it will go well beyond June 30, when Alvaro’s loan expires. In fact, Atletico want to look around and see if there are clubs willing to invest more money for Morata. Among the options already known are Arsenal and Barcelona (it would be part of the Griezmann affair), the new entry is Newcastle, which asked for information on the player.

Simeone and the others

In the meantime, the bianconeri are looking around and unhurriedly evaluating alternative paths. Morata’s farewell would have as an advantage the savings on the salary (he earns 5 million net). Polls have already been carried out for Luis Muriel of Atalanta (expiring in 2023 but with an option for 2024 that can be exercised by the club) and Marko Arnautovic of Bologna (of which the rossoblùs do not intend to deprive themselves), the latest idea is Giovanni Simeone, son of art (his father Diego is the manager of Atletico), owned by Cagliari but on loan to Verona. The Venetians are not so sure of exercising the right of redemption and this could favor the Juventus club.
