Alvaro Morata seals return to Juventus on-loan from Atletico Madrid

Alvaro Morata completes move to Juventus for a season-long loan.

Juventus have signed the Spanish striker on a season-long loan Atletico Madrid for £9m, the Italian champions announced on Tuesday.

The agreement also gives Juve an option to buy the 27-year-old at the end of the season for £41m to be paid over three years.

The striker left the Serie A side to join Real Madrid in 2016 but is set to rejoin the club on a season-long loan from Spain.


Morata scored 12 goals and made two assists for Atletico in the 2019-20 season after making his loan move from Chelsea permanent last summer.

The forward never hit the heights expected of him at Stamford Bridge but fared better in LaLiga, where he managed 43 goals in 112 games for both Atletico and Real.

The striker scored 15 goals across two years in his first spell with Juve but Morata is arguably the club’s second choice after missing out on Luis Suarez from Barcelona.
