Morata set for Real return

Alvaro Morata is on his way back to Real Madrid, Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has revealed.

Morata moved to Juventus from Real in 2014 but the La Liga giants have a buy-back arrangement in his contract and they have until July 15 to exercise their right to resign the 23-year-old.

Juventus are reported to have offered Morata a new contract to remain in Turin but Marotta expects the striker to return to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.

"Real Madrid have informed us of their intention to exercise the right to buy back [Morata], we are just waiting for a written offer," Marotta is quoted as saying.

"Only then will we see how to proceed, but at the moment the possibility of Morata staying are slim.

"He will leave Turin and return to Spain."

Morata, who has scored 27 goals in 93 appearances for the Serie A giants, has been linked with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United and it has been claimed that Real could look to sell him on in the summer.
