According to Sportitalia, Juventus and Atletico Madrid are close to agreeing on one more year in Turin for striker Alvaro Morata.

The Spaniard, 28, joined Juve on loan from Atletico last season. Juve had the option to buy or extend the loan at the end of this season, opted for the latter and is now reaching an agreement with the La Liga Champions for a lower loan fee. Initially,

Juve would have had to pay Atletico € 10 million in order to extend the loan for one more season, but the two sides according to the report are now lowering the fee to 8 millions.

The deal might be announced in the coming days and Massimiliano Allegri, reinstated as manager two seasons after parting ways with Juve, will get to work once again with a player he held in high regard in his first stint at the club.
