Juventus have failed to reach an agreement with Atletico Madrid regarding the permanent signing of Alvaro Morata.
The Spanish international’s future is up in the air as his two-year loan deal from Atleti expires at the end of this season. The Bianconeri were keen on keeping him but they won’t pay Los Rojiblancos’ asking price.
Juve initially want a discount for signing Morata as they only plan to pay up to €15m for the Spaniard. However, it looks like the Bianconeri won’t be getting their wish as Atleti refused the Turin giant’s proposal.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Juventusnews24), Los Rojiblancos won’t sell Morata for an amount below €27-28m. Both parties failed to reach an agreement, so the striker should return to Atletico at least for preseason.
Los Rojiblancos are not planning to keep Morata and will try to sell him permanently next season. Juve might not be the Spanish international’s destination unless they improve their offer.
