Ehe Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri, assured the media that lvaro Morata “will not go” to Barcelona after rumors about his possible departure to Xavi Hernndez’s team.
“lvaro is an important player and I am happy. I have spoken with him and I have told him that he is not leaving, despite the rumors, so he is excited “, explained Allegri at the press conference prior to the game that Juventus will play against Naples.
Allegri, who thus silenced the rumors that had been circulating for days about Morata’s possible departure to Barcelona, record the 21 goals scored by the attacker from Madrid last season and remarked that “this year he has scored seven set-piece goals.”
The Italian coach came out in defense of the forward by assuring that the problem with Morata is that people see him “as someone who is missing something”, when he really is the second highest scorer of team turins.
Morata, 29, has worn the ‘bianconera’ shirt in two stages of his sports career, the first between 2014 and 2016, and the current one, which began in 2020, when the Turins club brought him back, loaned by the Atltico de Madrid, for ten million euros.
The Spanish attacker has starred in a great career at Juventus, after scoring 21 goals in 44 games last year and win the Italian Cup and the Italian Super Cup.
