A few days ago the big surprise jumped. Álvaro Morata was the number 9 chosen by FC Barcelona to strengthen the lead and Xavi Hernández contacted the player, obtaining a yes for an answer. But we already anticipated that despite the will of the club and the striker it was a fairly complicated three-way operation and that is how it is.
However, Barça has the best asset of all since, according to reports from the newspaper Sport, Morata is completely determined to wear Barça and could put pressure on Juventus to let him out.
From the aforementioned media they point out that with Atlético de Madrid, a club that owns the footballer, there would be no major problems in reaching an agreement. The obstacle is Juventus, specifically Massimiliano Allegri, who has the striker between now and the end of the season and has no intention of letting him out in this market, even less so after Chiesa’s injury. Even so, Barcelona will continue to pressure the Bianconero club to achieve their goal.
The only option that seems possible for the Italians to lower their position and accept Morata’s departure is to have a substitute first. In Italy they have already advanced that within Juve they are interested in Memphis Depay, and although they do not directly propose an exchange between players, they could soften their position.
The other name that they handle in Turin to reinforce the forward is that of Mauro Icardi, who is not having excessive prominence in PSG. However, Juve’s idea is to get a transfer without a mandatory purchase option while PSG will only let him out as a transfer and ask for 30 million euros for him, they report from Sky Sports Italy Y L’Equipe. The problem is that Juventus does not want to make that payment.
In this way, the operation for Morata at the Camp Nou is still active and despite the efforts of both parties to reach an agreement, no progress has been made at the moment and they are at the mercy of Juventus.
