Alvaro Morata moving to juventus
Alvaro Morata moving to juventus for 20 million euros

One of the most exciting prospects of the Real Madrid youth setup has failed to make the grade in the first team. He played second fiddle to Benzema the whole of last season and never really made any progress at all.  All this is down to Carlo Ancelotti having nil faith in Morata.  But if we are to believe the latest rumors about him then he is going to be in safe hands.


This lack of faith has prevented him from continuing his progress and the emergence of his fellow academy mate, Jese, has not done much good to him. The fans and the board believe Jese will become a bigger and a better player and Florentino Perez is trusting in Jese to become their new Ronaldo.

Morata was also linked with a move to Manchester United and the papers went to the extent of writing about the prospect of Morata eventually replacing Robin Van Persie.

Morata’s decision to move to Juventus might come as a surprise to everyone because even Arsenal was interested in him. But this move is very very good for his future as he will be under the management of Antonio Conte who has already worked wonders with his current crop of young layers like Paul Pogba and Giovinco to name a few.

Morata will relish the prospect of huge amounts of playing time if he impresses Conte.  Conte even benched Marchisio after the emergence of Pogba. He is not scared to bench star players and will not shy away from benching Tevez in favor of playing Morata.

All these signs are pointing to a new and glorious career ahead for Morata and if only he can seize the opportunities coming his way, and trust me he will get plenty of them under Conte, he will become a mainstay of Juventus first team and also in the national setup.
