Real Madrid president hints at Alvaro Morata's return from Juventus next summer

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is under the impression that Juventus is grooming Alvaro Morata before his return to Spain next summer.

Although Morata was sold to the Italian champions last summer, a clause in the agreement between the two teams states that the Spanish giants have an option to buy the young forward back at the conclusion of the 2015-16 campaign.

"We could bring him (back). It is developing, and at the end of the season we could pay €10 million more than we sold him for (around €22m)," Perez revealed to Marca.

Juventus, however, will do its best to avoid such a transfer as it contemplates signing Morata to a new deal, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, in order to persuade him to avoid a move back to Madrid, where he struggled for playing time before his move to Turin.

Morata, who scored the winner against Manchester City on Tuesday, tallied 13 goals during his debut season, including five in Juve's runner-up performance in the Champions League.
