Yesterday Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata and his agent met Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici so many interpreted this meeting as the first step for a possible return of the Spanish player to the Italian champions.
However, today, Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta denied the club is interested in Morata: “These are simply rumours. I want to deny them, we don’t want to deceive anyone”. Marotta said during the launch of a book about Juventus. “We already have a great attack of international calibre, so it’s an area where we don’t have to make any bets. Therefore, at this point, any operation seems totally utopian”.
Giuseppe Marotta also claimed there’s the chance Morata himself would love to play again for Juventus as he remembers the time he spent with the “Bianconeri”: “Now we are in the most important phase of the transfer market, so as always, every day, they link Juventus with many players,” Marotta went on. “That also applies to the Morata affair which is on the agenda today. The fact is that the most important players of this Agnelli cycle who have gone away all carry with them a great memory of Juventus, and almost all of them want to savour the Juventus climate”.
