Juventus Sign Morata On Loan From Atletico Madrid

Published

on

Juventus have completed a loan deal to sign Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid, the club announced on Tuesday.

Morata, 27, landed in Turin on Monday to finalise his move to re-join the Italian champions.

The agreement gives Juventus the right to definitively acquire Morata by the end of the 2020-2021 season for a transfer fee of €45 million, which would be payable over three years.
Juventus also have the right to extend the acquisition on a temporary basis until the end of the 2021-2022 season for a fee of €10 million.

The striker enjoyed a successful loan spell at Juve during 2014-2016 where he scored 27 goals, including a strike in the 2015 Champions League final against Barcelona.

The Spain international won two Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia trophies in his two-year stint at the club.

Juve initially tried to sign Barcelona’s Luis Suarez and AS Roma’s Edin Dzeko but those deals failed to materialise.

Juve have signed Morata, Arthur, Felix Correia and United States men’s international Weston McKennie since Andrea Pirlo took charge of the club.

Morata will play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala in a strong forward line as Juve aim to clinch a 10th consecutive Serie A title.

Manchester United Reject Signing Neymar

Published

on

Manchester United reportedly decided against signing Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar in a swap deal with former midfielder Paul Pogba back in 2019, Express UK reports.

Neymar has continued to be linked with a departure from PSG this summer as he’s irked by comments made by the club’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Al-Khelaifi had recently said: “A possible departure for Neymar this summer?

“What I can tell you is that we expect all players to do a lot more than last season.

“You have to become humble, you have to avoid injuries, suspensions and fouls that change a game.”

However, one team linked with the 30-year-old Brazilian international is Manchester United, although they could have already acquired him three years ago.

Man United’s former chief executive Ed Woodward rejected the opportunity of bringing Neymar to Old Trafford.

PSG reportedly approached Man United about the possibility of exchanging Neymar with Pogba, but the Premier League giants deemed the former Barcelona star to be too expensive.

Neymar’s wages of around £606,000 a week reportedly put Woodward off, and the former executive was also keen to keep Pogba at United.
