If the big clubs want Morata, they'll have to pay.

Álvaro Morata's future remains uncertain, and while some reports say that he will stay with Real Madrid accepting a bench role behind Karim Benzemaothers suggest that Los Blancos will ask for €75 million in order to let him go, with big Premier League clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea interested in his signing.

Real Madrid willl almost certainly buy Morata back from Juventus next July, and they will pay the €30 million agreed on the player's contract with Juventus. What will happen later is only a matter of speculation, as coach Zinedine Zidane would like to keep him but the player definitely wants to feel relevant and that's probably something he cannot achieve with Karim Benzema on the roster. Benzema has played his best season for Madrid and there are no reasons suggesting that Zidane should drop him and start Morata often, no matter how promising he has been with Juventus and Spain.

Either way, both Morata and Madrid will have some tough decisions to make.
