Morata currently plays his football with Juventus, on loan from parent club Atletico Madrid, who he joined from Chelsea in July 2020 for a deal worth £58 million.

Now, according to latest resport Barcelona are well on their way to signing Morata this month with the transfer ‘95% complete’.

It is outlined that “a total agreement has already been reached with Juventus for the player’s loan for the next six months, as well as an agreement with Atletico to execute a future purchase option.”

The fact that Atletico still have outstanding funds from Barca for the purchase of Antoine Griezmann would also play a part in the deal, with Xavi’s side taking over Morata instead.
