Alvaro Morata will return to Atletico Madrid for the new season. Juventus confirmed his departure in a statement thanking him for the services to the Turin club.
The club statement read:
‘The bond between Alvaro and Juve was first born in 2014 and led to two league titles, two Italian Cups and an Italian Super Cup, as well as the journey to the final of the Champions League in Berlin in 2015. Such a solid relationship could not break when their roads first parted on June 21, 2016.
‘So, four years later, Alvaro’s second adventure with Juventus began when instead of a boy with his future to write, it was a man with plenty of experience on his shoulders that returned to Turin, ready to embrace a past that had never really been forgotten and to live other unforgettable moments.’
The Spaniard has ended his loan spell in Juventus after joining back in 2020 on a two years loan deal with an option to buy around €35m which Juventus didn’t intend to pay to keep him, and he’s now going to return to Atletico Madrid after both clubs fails to reach agreements.
Another factor that contributed to the decision of keeping Morata at Atletico is the departure of Luis Suarez, who leaves the club after two seasons.
