Spain striker Alvaro Morata will return to Real Madrid, says Juventus director Beppe Marotta.

The La Liga giants have a €30million buy-back arrangement in place which they must exercise before July 15 for the 23-year-old and Juve have now claimed they will take up that option.

Marotta told a press conference: “Real Madrid have exercised their clause for Morata.

“Now we just wait for the formal offer, then we see how to act but the chances of him remaining are little.”

Juve have believed to have offered the striker a new contract to stay in Turin, but Real have signalled their intentions to buy him before immediately selling him for a fee of around 60million euros.

PSG are also believed to be interested in the player, who has scored 27 goals in 93 appearances for the Serie A giants, albeit only 48 of those appearances came in the form of starts.
