Alvaro Morata could leave Real Madrid this summer, but the club are insisting on inserting a buy-back clause before finalising any deal.

Morata’s future has been a source of constant speculation for the last few weeks and earlier this week Carlo Ancelotti conceded that Real Madrid won’t stand in his way if the Spaniard wants to leave the club in search of more football.

However, a deal to sign the 21-year-old striker will be complicated as Real Madrid would prefer to insert a buy-back clause into any agreement, as they have done regularly in past transfers.

Los Blancos are demanding €30m for the Spaniard if any club want to take Morata without the buy-back clause and €18m to €25m if they are allowed to insert that specific clause.

However, interested clubs are also insisting on a separate deal of their own. They would only agree to a buy-back clause if Real Madrid agreed to pay 30% more than the buying club originally paid to purchase Morata, if they wish to activate the clause, according to AS.  


Juventus and Inter Milan have already contacted Real Madrid with regards to Morata and Arsenal are also interested in signing the young Spaniard this summer.

Real Madrid could still shock everybody by loaning out the Spaniard however, and Villarreal are keen to take him on a season-long loan deal.
