Juventus open talks with Atletico for Alvaro Morata

Atletico Madrid forward Alvaro Morata could be in line for a surprise loan move to Juventus, according to reports.

Morata, 27, spent two seasons at Juve from 2014 until 2016, scoring 27 goals in 93 appearances.

And the word from Spain and Italy is that a return to Turin for Morata is in the works.

Juve have been in negotiations for Roma striker Edin Dzeko but the capital club have still not signed his replacement (Arek Milik).

A slowdown on the Dzeko front has led to Juventus opening talks with Atletico for Morata, who scored 16 goals last season.

Deportes Cuatro claims Diego Simeone is already working on a replacement, with Luis Suarez top of his list.

Other options include Edinson Cavani and the other Luis Suarez (Watford-owned).

Gianluca Di Marzio states that talks for Morata are ‘precautionary’ in case the Dzeko deal collapses.

Juventus would offer €10m for a loan with an option to buy Morata for €45m plus €2m in bonuses.
