Fabrizio Romano has come out with some vital news for Los Rojiblancos in that Juventus are not considering making Morata’s move permanent this summer. Allegri wants to keep the Spaniard at the club but an alternative solution has to be found involving an extension of the loan.

The two clubs are said to be in talks at the moment. What makes the negotiations interesting is the inclusion of Moise Kean in a possible swap deal.

Morata began his career in Real Madrid’s academy before making the jump to the first team in 2013. In the subsequent season, he made the move to Juventus where he provided his services for two seasons.

Then, Morata signed once again for Los Blancos in 2016 before departing for Chelsea just 12 months later.

In 2019, Morata made a controversial and unpopular move to Atletico Madrid on loan and eventually joined Simeone’s side on a permanent transfer in 2020. Now, his future is in the air once again.

The 29-year-old made 26 league starts for Juventus last season, scoring nine goals and providing seven assists. While his impact is undeniable, the signing of Dusan Vlahovic has pushed the Italians away from buying the Spaniard.

Allegri’s side must mandatorily execute Kean’s purchase clause in June. The Italian international’s situation has prompted them to consider a swap deal involving Kean and Morata. While this would work out well for Juventus, it remains to be seen if Simeone is in favour of such a move.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
