Agent: Morata closing in on Juventus move

The 21-year-old is said to be edging toward leaving the Spanish capital for Turin — despite reported interest from Arsenal and Wolfsburg.

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is closing in on a move to Italian champion Juventus, according to his agent.

The 21-year-old has been linked with several sides after Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti said that the youngster had been left frustrated with his lack of starts for the Spanish side last season.

The player’s agent, Juanma Lopez, spent Monday morning at the Santiago Bernabeu offices and told AS that his client had moved “a little closer to Juventus.”

Real Madrid is willing to sell Morata to the Scudetto holder given its plethora of attacking options but is reportedly intent on including a buy-back clause in any deal for the youth academy product.

Morata – who was not chosen to travel to the World Cup in Brazil with the Spain squad this summer – has also been linked with a move to Premier League side Arsenal and German club Wolfsburg in recent weeks.

Morata started just three of Madrid's Liga games last season but scored eight goals in 23 appearances for the club.
