It has finally happened. After former Juventus coach Antonio Conte decided to leave the Italian club, Álvaro Morata took some time before deciding whether he should join Juventus or Wolfsburg. According to Tuttosport, Morata had dinner with his agent this Thursday and settled upon joining La Vecchia Signora after talking with new Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Morata leaves Real Madrid, although the Spanish club will keep a buyback option that should be around 30-35M€. The striker will try to live up to his potential in Turin after a difficult season with Real Madrid. He didn't enjoy much playing time and looked rusty whenever he needed to replace starting striker Karim Benzema. Even Isco, whose natural position is in the midfield, played as Benzema's backup sometimes due to Morata's lack of confidence in the position. Outside the Bernabéu, he will not have that much pressure to shine and succeed, and that's why Real Madrid is confident about Morata's potential chances of returning to the Bernabéu in the not too distant future.
