‘Several teams’ interested in him, claims Morata

Spain international Alvaro Morata claimed that several clubs registered interest in signing him in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The player will also return to Atletico Madrid after Juventus decided not to make his two year loan deal a permanent one. Juventus had to shell out €35 million (£29.3 million) to make him a permanent player but decided to opt against it.

But back at the Spanish capital, the 29-year old faces a doubtful future. The striker revealed that he hopes to play for a club where he feels ‘loved’ and ‘valued’, just like he got at the Turin club.

In a recent interview with journalist Matteo Moretto, the former Chelsea striker revealed the following: “I have quite a few options. It’s not up to me. The good thing is that there are several teams.” Continuing, what he hope from his next destination, he further added: “I would like to be where they love me the most and value me. In the last two places I’ve been I’ve been very happy because there are wonderful people.”

Morata situation

The Spain forward previously played for Chelsea in Premier League and also for Real Madrid. He last made an appearance for Atletico Madrid back in July 2020. In the recently-concluded season for Juventus, Morata bagged 9 goals in 35 appearances in all competitions for the Old Lady.

He further provided 7 assists for his teammates in those matches as well. This was his second stint with the Turin club as he played for them from 2014 to 2016.

For the national team, Morata earned 54 caps in which he scored 26 goals overall. Once again in the upcoming World Cup, he will be a key player for Luis Enrique’s Spain.

His latest goal was against Portugal in which he scored the opener for Spain which ended 1-1 in a Nations League clash. Arsenal and Barcelona, according to reports, registered interest in him but it’s unsure where he might end up.
