Morata returns to Juventus on loan from Atletico Madrid for the 2021-22 season.



The Spanish national team player scored 20 goals for the Bianconeri in the last campaign and will remain in Turin under Max Allegri.

Juventus have exercised their right to renew Alvaro Morata’s loan from Atlético Madrid for next season.

Since Morata’s return to the club last year, Bianconeri have had the option to extend the deal for another 12 months, buy Spain or cancel the deal this summer.

Juventus have decided to keep the 28-year-old striker for another campaign, and the deal will cost them another € 10m (£ 8.5m / $ 12m).

Mora’s Return

The Spanish national team player played in Turin between 2014 and 2016, winning two Serie A titles in the same number of seasons and scoring a losing streak in the 2015 Champions League final against Barcelona.

Morata moved to Chelsea and then Atletico Madrid and then returned to Juventus ahead of the 2020-21 season.

The striker scored 20 goals for Juventus last season, more than he scored in a single season in the top five European leagues in his career.

Overall, Morata has scored 47 goals and made 27 assists in 137 appearances for Juventus.

Why is Morata staying?

The striker had a strong desire to stay in Turin, especially after the appointment of Massimiliano Allegri as head coach.

Morata made great strides under Allegri during his first period for Juventus and will now have the opportunity to work under him again after replacing Andrea Pirlo as manager.

Juventus tried to get a discount on the loan commission for Mora, but Atletico Madrid rejected this attempt and forced them to pay the full amount of € 10 million.
