Happy to be here at Juventus but I’d be happier with a trophy, proclaims Alvaro Morata

On loan, Juventus striker Alvaro Morata has admitted he is happy to play for the Torino side, although he wants to win a trophy this season with the club. The Spanish striker has spent the last eighteen months on loan in Serie A from Atletico Madrid and the transfer could be made permanent.

Despite good results for Atlético Madrid in his first season, Los Rojiblancos sent Alvaro Morata on loan to Juventus with the Old Lady reportedly keen to sign the striker. The 29-year-old signed for his former club on loan in the summer of 2020 and has since become a key part of their squad. Not only that, Morata has found the net consistently with 31 goals and 19 assists so far in his second stint with the club.

Reports indicate that Juventus are keen to activate the purchase option they have in the deal, although the Torino side are looking to negotiate a lower fee with Atletico Madrid. The two sides are yet to start talks but Morata has revealed he would be happy to stay at the club for the near future. Not only that, the Spanish striker added that he was giving his all for the team and believed he could still make an impact.

“There’s a long queue to come here and it’s normal to be judged every game. I give everything to win for my teammates and the fans. I’m glad to be here. My sons ask me to sing the club anthem every morning, I’m happy, but I’d be happier with a trophy,” Morata said, Goal reported.

The 29-year-old also praised former Juventus teammate Carlos Tevez and revealed the Argentine was someone who helped him become the footballer he is today. Moreover, Morata revealed that when he met Tevez again recently, they talked about a lot of things besides the regret of losing the Champions League final in 2015 against Barcelona.

“Somehow he [Tevez] made me become a footballer. I was only 21 and didn’t have much experience. He became one of the greatest players of all time; Tevez had incredible quality. There aren’t many players like him in history. He would win matches on his own.

“We talked about football, family, everything. He knows that I will be eternally grateful to him. There is a small regret. Maybe there was a penalty for us in the [Champions League] Final against Barcelona, ​​but that’s how life is,” he added.
