The 27-year-old striker from Madrid will come to Juventus on loan for a season in exchange for ten million euros, with a purchase option set at about 45 millions, according to the Italian media.
The operation also provides for the possibility for Juventus to extend Morata’s loan for a second season in exchange for another ten million euros and to formalize an eventual permanent signing the following year for about 35 million.
This formula would allow Juventus to avoid making a significant expense this season, considering that the Turin club accumulates losses that are close to 90 million euros in this financial year.
If the operation is formalized, Morata would return to Juventus, a club in which he was already from 2014 to 2016 and with which won two titles league, in addition to losing the 2015 Champions League final against Barcelona.
