Juventus wants a Real Madrid striker as a replacement for Morata


Juventus have lost this summer an important striker like Álvaro Morata and they want to find a good replacement. Especially because Mario Mandzukic didn’t show a great performance in his first season as ‘bianconeri’.

Massimiliano Allegri wants to find a suitable replacement for Morata to fight for the Champions League, as well as for Serie A and Coppa Italia. This year’s goal for Juventus must be the Champions League after reigning in Italy for the last five years in a row.

Alexis Sánchez and Karim Benzema are the two options for Juventus, according to the Italian newspaper Tuttosport. The first option is the former Barcelona player Alexis Sánchez, who arrived to London two years ago. Wenger doesn’t want to get rid of the South American player but the gunners are looking for a big signing in the front line this summer.

If Arsenal finally get a huge player -reports say that Gonzalo Higuaín might arrive-, Alexis Sánchez doesn’t need to stay at the Emirates Stadium. At this point, Juventus could get him for at least €42,5M, the price Arsenal paid to Barcelona.

If this option fails, Juventus want Karim Benzema. According to the Italian newspaper, Morata’s arrival to Real Madrid could open the door to the French player, who scored 24 goals in 27 appearances in La Liga. New goals in the Italian league could be the incentives for Benzema to sign for Juventus. However, it’s very unlikely that after 6 years at a really good level, Real Madrid allow Benzema to leave the club without a top class replacement in the squad.

Actually, it’s more likely that Jesé leaves the club rather than Karim Benzema. The Canarian player wants to stay at the club but there is no space for him if Benzema and Morata finally stays in the front line. Whatever happen, it’s pretty clear that Real Madrid cannot have Benzema, Morata and Jesé in the squad. Too many strikers for one position.
