In search of an attacker, FC Barcelona of Xavi tried the blow for Alvaro Morata … who should not, however, leave Juventus this winter.
With the early retirement of Sergio Aguero the need for a goalscorer is felt at FC Barcelona . Thus, Xavi would have slipped several tracks to its leaders in this winter transfer window with in particular Alvaro Morata, currently loaned by Atlético de Madrid to the Juventus. The hopes of Barça however, were recently showered by Massimiliano Allegri, who has no desire to part ways with the Spaniard. “Morata will not leave” announced the coach of Juve, at a press conference. “I spoke to him and told him that he will not move from here because to find someone of his level, you have to take the 4 or 5 best forwards. Alvaro stays with a lot of enthusiasm, that's all ”. However, in Catalonia we are assured that Barça would not have completely abandoned the track …

A new answer arrives on Monday, since La Gazzetta dello Sport explains that the Alvaro Morata case would be definitively closed. Juventus would have indeed combed the market to try to find a replacement and in front of the various failures encountered, the leaders would have decided to keep him at least until next June, when his loan will affect his term. Not sure, however, that the Bianconeri intend to exercise their option to buy, which amounts to almost € 35m.
