Alvaro Morata can be the key for Paul Pogba to arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu next summer, according to Spanish newspaper EcoDiario.
Real Madrid have a buy-back option to bring the Spaniard back to Spain for 32 million euros. EcoDiario has reported that Florentino Perez is willing to use that clause to exert pressure on Juventus to sell them Pogba.
Morata’s real transfer value is around 50 million euros, and selling him for 32 would mean that Juve would potentially lose around 18 million. Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have shown an interest in signing the Spaniard, and they would certainly pay the Italians more than 32 million.
Juventus have been firmed whenever asked about Pogba’s price, and they don’t seem willing to let him go for less than 100 million euros. That is an amount that Florentino Perez is not ready to pay, but the clause in Morata’s contract could help him cheapen the deal.
Pogba is one of Zinedine Zidane favourite candidates to reinforce the Real Madrid squad next summer. His arrival could open the door for Casemiro’s exit.
