Morata has scored 12 goals for Atletico this season

Despite links, Alvaro Morata has signed a new contract with Atlético Madrid until June 2027. He was a recognised target for Serie A clubs looking for a new striker, including Inter, Milan, and Roma.

A third stint with Juventus was also considered following the time he spent from 2014-16 and possibly from 2020 to 2022.

Initially, it was reported that he had a €12 million release clause for clubs other than Italy, but Spanish sources claimed it was nearer to two times that amount.

According to Sky Sport Italia football specialist Fabrizio Romano, Atletico Madrid have provided him with a contract extension that will keep him at Diego Simeone’s team until 2027.

Morata’s time at Atletico Madrid commenced in 2019 when he was loaned from Chelsea. His influence was instant, as he fit into Diego Simeone’s tactical setup and showed his goal-scoring talents. His ability to score goals, as well as his work ethic both on and off the field of play.

Moata established himself as an important member of Atletico’s assault in the following seasons, delivering critical goals and assists. His relationship with fellow attacker Luis Suarez was important in Atletico winning La Liga in 2020-2021.

Their mix of skill, creativity, and clinical shooting was an impossible task for opposing defences, and it was instrumental in clinching the league title.

Morata is determined to continue his adventure with Atletico. The former Chelsea striker is ready to push for a regular starting berth in Diego Simeone’s XI and establish his worth.

He would battle for a starting berth with Memphis Depay and maybe partner with Antoine Griezmann in Simeone’s preferred 4-4-2 formation.

Los Rojiblancos have been relatively quiet in the transfer market, landing Javi Galan and Santiago Mourino for pitiful sums. They additionally acquired free agents Caglasr Soyuncu and Cesar Azpiliceta.
