Arsenal transfer target Alvaro Morata remains unsure of his future at Juventus as Real Madrid plot buy-back raid
Arsenal target Alvaro Morata says he hopes he has not played his last game for Juventus – amid reports that he is set to leave the Serie A side.
Spanish striker Morata is wanted by a long list of clubs, which includes Arsenal, with Real Madrid expected to exercise the option to re-sign him this summer for £23m.
It has been reported that they will then look to sell him on once again for a huge profit – with Real ready to slap a £50m asking price on Morata.
But now the 23-year-old has muddied the waters – and delivered a blow to Arsenal – by revealing that he does not want to leave Juve at all.
He said: “I do not know when my future will be clear, but basically I’m in no hurry because I have a contract with one of the best clubs in the world.
“At Juventus, I feel at home. I wish my last match with Juve was not my last in Italy, I hope to play in more.
“It’s obvious that I don’t want to go and play for a club I don’t want to play for. I’ve got a contract with Juventus and I can have a say, but in the end it depends on the two clubs [Juventus and Real Madrid].”
