Juventus welcomed Alvaro Morata back to Turin ahead of the forward’s expected return to the Serie A champions.
Goal can confirm Morata is set to join Juve on loan from Atletico Madrid in a deal that will cost €9 million (£8m/$11m) and the Italian club will also apparently have an option to buy the 27-year-old for €45m.
Juventus, who have been searching for a forward, welcomed Morata back as he landed in Turin.
“@AlvaroMorata is back in town!” the club wrote on Twitter alongside a picture of the forward.
Morata is set for his second spell at Juve, where he scored 27 goals in 93 games across two seasons between 2014 and 2016.
He then returned to Real Madrid for a season before joining Chelsea and later Atletico, where he netted 12 La Liga goals in 34 games last season.
