Juventus have not given up hope of signing Arsenal and Chelsea target Alvaro Morata, according to club chief Giuseppe Marotta.
The Italian champions were forced to sell the striker after just two season this summer when Real Madrid activated his £23million buy-back clause.
Once that had gone through, Arsenal and Chelsea both looked at signing the Spain international, with Real apparently keen to cash-in on the in-form frontman – but they were priced out of a move and he remained at the Bernabeu.
However, Juventus’ general manager, Giuseppe Marotta, has revealed that they are now hopeful of bringing Morata back to Turin.
“In football you can never say never,” said Marotta when asked if Morata could return one day.
“We knew we risked losing him and we were sad. His love for Juventus is an important prerequisite so he could one day come back for a definitive marriage.”
