Alvaro Morata completes €18 million move from Real Madrid to Juventus [Pictures]
- July 19, 2014
Alvaro Morata has officially completed an €18 million transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus.
The two clubs were in negotiations about the future of the striker, haggling over the price and clauses in his contract. It has been said that Madrid wanted a bigger fee but settled for having a buy-back clause inserted into his contract.
Morata has signed a 5 year deal with the Italian champions and the club parting ways with manager Antonio Conte mere days before his move was sealed didn’t seem to affect the forward’s mood: “The motivation to get to this club is that it is one that has more history than a lot of clubs in the world and the best clubs in Europe. It’s the best club in Italy. I want to contribute in their victories. I talked to the coach and I am eager to train.
I’m happy to be here because Juventus is where I wanted to be. I had always known I wanted to play here. The club has always shown much interest in me to play here; the faith they have placed in me is important and I want to return with this work and get training as soon as possible.
There were offers in England and other countries but I wanted to be here and play for Juventus; Serie A is one of the best leagues in the world and it sure helps me to improve and move forward. It’s a tough league but I hope it serves me to progress and I’m looking forward to playing in Serie A.
I admire many players in this squad and I have shirts of some important players on this team when we played with them in the Champions League. Llorente, Tevez, Vidal, Pirlo and Pogba are great world-class players and I’m looking forward to playing with them. There are three major front in this club now and I’m ready to play. Competition is good and makes you better. It represents a motivation for me that I will require more and to be better for the good of Juventus.”
You can read all of Morata’s quotes, as well as those of Beppe Marotta, on Mundo Deportivo.
Morata leaves Madrid having played just 52 games for the club over four seasons, scoring 11 goals.
