Amidst a lot of transfer rumours surrounding Alvaro Morata, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has stated that the striker does not remain for sale at a reported € 30 million.
The striker scored goals in the two Champions League semifinals and also went on to score the consolation for the Italian outfit in the final against Barcelona. This was an impressive performance from the Spaniard, who moved to Juventus just two months ago for around € 20 million from Real Madrid. After helping Juventus beat his former club, speculation has grown that Madrid would exercise their right of buying him back for € 30 million that was inserted in the sale agreement.
If the Spanish club do not get him, Allegri believes that Morata is worth around € 80 million in the market today. The 22-year-old scored 15 goals in 41 appearances for Juventus across all competitions. More importantly, he had the presence that helped Juventus build their football around him. The club managed to win yet another league title while also completing the Coppa Italia title. They could have become the first Italian team since Inter Milan in 2010 to have won the treble. Still, it was an excellent campaign for Juventus and Allegri says that this has increased the worth of Morata.
“If we must sell him, I hope the club at least gets 70 to 80 million euros for him. This is Morata’s current value.I think we must focus on him and also on (Juventus forward Kingsley) Coman, another youngster with excellent skills, that needs a bit more time to reach his top level.A Pogba transfer? Obviously it would be a decision made by the club and not by the technical team. When you talk about certain figures, it’s difficult to say no,” said Allegri about Pogba and Morata’s futures.
