Why Morata probably won’t leave Juventus for Barcelona

by | Jan 26, 2022 17:20

Alvaro Morata does not seem likely to join Barcelona in January for a number of reasons, including Juventus reticence, Atletico Madrid terms and Ousmane Dembele’s situation.

It was assumed that with the Bianconeri spending €67m plus €8m in bonuses to Fiorentina for Dusan Vlahovic, this would open the door for Morata to leave Turin.

He is 18 months into a two-year loan deal from Atletico Madrid, worth €20m, with an option to buy in June for a further €35m.

It does not seem as if Juve have any intention of activating that option to make the move permanent.

However, Max Allegri is not eager to let the Spain international leave in January either, even with the arrival of Vlahovic.

That is only one of the reasons why a Barcelona switch is increasingly unlikely, as Atletico Madrid do not want to reinforce their rivals, so are setting a series of complicated clauses if the Blaugrana really do intend to sign him.

On top of that, Spanish reports today claim that Dembele is back in negotiations with Barcelona to extend his contract and the tension of the last few weeks has calmed somewhat.

If Dembele stays and is brought back into the squad, they do not need Morata.

    All these words and a simple answer. Because Barcelona don’t want him. Totally overrated.

    I’m happy for him to stay until the summer. Who knows, he might strike up a great partnership with Vlahovic and earn a permanent move?

  3. Frankie

    Morata plays better when he has another striker beside him such as when he had Benzema at RM and Tevez, and later Mandzukic, at Juve. So there is a good chance that he will lift his performance with Vlahovic taking some of the pressure off. If this partnership is successful, he may well extend his stay at Juve.

  4. Jimmy

    Morata simply deserves a club that believes in him and gives him playing credit for a good run of matches. This could either be Juventus or Barcelona along a suitable striking partner; but it’s a necessity if he wants to bring up his tally and confidence. People are always so full of critisism without ever understanding a situation or player. He’s a stand-up guy and striker.
    From an Inter fan.
