Álvaro Morata is back home, but he doesn't want to lose any money in the process. Real Madrid confirmed the signing of the Spanish striker two weeks ago and now a report from OKDiario suggests that Morata wants Real Madrid to match the €6.5 million salary he had with Juventus.

Furthermore, Morata received several offers from the Premier League that would give him €10 million a year, so he feels he has the right to demand that salary raise.

While Madrid confirmed their deal for Morata, it's not clear whether the striker will stay with the club this season or not given that he wants to be a relevant player with plenty of minutes, something that he might not have with Madrid behind Karim Benzema in the rotation. If he is not going to be happy, Madrid might be better off selling the player, letting him enjoy the minutes he wants and getting some cash in the meantime.
