TRANSFER TALK: ALVARO MORATA to Liverpool?
Liverpool have reportedly shown interest in and even made a bid on former Real Madrid and now current Juventus player Alvaro Morata.
Morata is Spanish, he was born in Madrid. He spent a couple of years playing for Atletico Madrid and also Getafe as a youth player but eventually found his way to Real Madrid by 2008. By 2010 he was a part of the first team, competing for a strikers position with players like Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo and he would play for the club in his hometown until 2014 and then Juventus made their bid of 20 Million Euros, which was accepted.
So, since 2014 Morata has been a Juventus player and according to Gazzetta World Sport and Sky Sports at least, Liverpool already launched a 60 Millions Euros bid to Juventus for the player… who rejected it!
Sources at the Italian club say that the Serie A football giants are quite determined to keep a hold of this striker and will accept nothing short of over 60M Euros. Liverpool are in need of a striker as players like Divock Origi, Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge all are on the injury list and fighting their way back to full fitness, leaving the strikers position needing to be filled as that happens.
However, should our new manager or perhaps even our owners decide that a higher bid than 60M Euros is too much to play, then this player may stay in Italy due to the rather large demands being made by his club for an exceedingly large transfer fee.
Liverpool will certainly be on the look for new strikers but it is unlikely we’ll land this one, due to being rather overpriced.
At least you know about this happening. Whether the player will or will not join Liverpool, we’ll have the news either way about it’s possibility here on Anfield Family for you. That’s “Transfer Talk”.
