MORATA WANTS TO STAY AT JUVENTUS, CLAIMS MAROTTA

MORATA WANTS TO STAY AT
JUVENTUS, CLAIMS MAROTTA


By Jamie Smith
Zinedine Zidane's team have been rumoured
to be considering using their buyback clause
on the Spain international, but the Bianconeri
will try to convince him to stay
Alvaro Morata wants to stay at Juventus
rather than leave the Serie A champions to
return to Real Madrid, Juve director Beppe
Marotta claims.
The striker is nearing the end of his second
year in Turin, but Madrid have the option of
buying him back at the end of the season.
Morata was involved in Juve's 2-0 victory
over Carpi on Sunday that extended their
winning streak to 10 league games, but
Marotta revealed the player's future
remains unclear.
"Some situations, such as that of Morata, do
not depend on us," he told Mediaset
Premium.
"We want to keep the lad and have to
discuss it with Real Madrid. His destiny also
depends on Real Madrid's, as they are
currently active in La Liga and the Champions
League.



"The player improved and grew a great deal
with us, while he feels bonded to our club
colours.
"He wants to stay with Juventus, but
obviously Real Madrid have everything
needed to change his mind."
Marotta added that Juve want to keep
veteran defender Patrice Evra and will
discuss a new contract with the France
international soon.
"He is very happy at Juventus and he'll
decide based on his family needs," the
director said.
"We want to continue with him and will talk
to the player over the next few weeks."
