Juventus Will Try To Keep Morata Says CEO Giuseppe Marotta
Serie A champions Juventus’ CEO Giuseppe Marotta has reiterated that the club will leave no stone unturned to keep the talented Spanish forward Alvaro Morata at Juventus Stadium, as rumours are high that Morata might head back to his former club Real Madrid this summer.
In an interview to the Italian daily newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport Giuseppe Marotta praised Morata and said that he is a talented footballer and is gradually growing up to be a champion. He also stressed on the fact that the club will try all possible options to keep Morata at the club.
Marotta talked about Real Madrid’s 35 million euros ($39 million) buy back clause and considers it to be the main stumbling block. Juventus will negotiate with Real Madrid after the Champions League Final.
The club CEO also confirmed his interest in Barcelona defender Dani Alves this summer. Marotta said that Alves is a major player for any club and Juventus will look forward and see what can be done.
Club CEO Marotta also confirmed the Mascherano deal to be farce and a speculative campaign undertaken by the media.
