It seems like Alvaro Morata will not be making a move away from Real Madrid anytime soon and this is a huge blow for a few clubs including: Chelsea and Arsenal as those clubs had shown interest in signing the 23 year old Spanish attacker.
Real Madrid had initially placed a price tag on Alvaro Morata in the region of £63million but Zinedine Zidane has recently confirmed his desire to keep hold on Morata for the forseeable future as the French manager has plans of using Morata and actually putting him on the main team of Real Madrid by the next season.
Yes, Morata is a Real Madrid player. We’re delighted to have him back, back to his original home. He’s going to remain a Real Madrid player.” Zinedine Zidane said as he voiced his desire to keep hold of Morata.
A few weeks ago it was believed that Real Madrid was planning to offload Alvaro Morata in order to create enough funds and bring in Paul Pogba with that injection of cash but it seems like all of that was nothing but false rumors.
Even PSG had shown interest in signing Alvaro Morata as the French club has recently lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic and now the head coach Unai Emery is searching for someone that can provide assistance to Edinson Cavani.
The first top European club that Alvaro Morata signed with was Real Madrid; this was back in 2008, where he managed to perform in the youth academy team before eventually being promoted to the main squad but only barely getting any playing time.
Morata was transferred to Juventus FC on July of 2014 for a transfer fee of €20 million but this contract allowed Real Madrid to buy him back and this is what they did 2 years later as the Spanish squad splashed out €30 million.
