Morata agent: "He's still got offers from the Premier League"
Juanma López remained cautious as he discussed the future of striker Álvaro Morata, whose buy-back clause Real triggered on TuesdayRussia - Spain
The agent of Spain striker Álvaro Morata was at the Santiago Bernabéu on Wednesday as he finalised the details of Real Madrid's move to buy the 23-year-old back from Juventus.
Buy-back option activated by Real
Real revealed in a statement issued on Tuesday that they had exercised their purchase option on the academy graduate, who left the club for the Italian champions in 2014.
However, Juanma López confirmed that the player's future is far from being resolved, telling AStv: "He still has offers from top clubs in the Premier League."
Morata is determined to be given a significant role at Madrid and avoid being reduced to the brief of understudy to Frenchman Karim Benzema.
His camp is therefore keen to seek assurances from Real head coach Zinedine Zidane before anything is decided.
"We have to talk to Zidane"
"We'll see, we have to talk to Zidane," López said. "But for the moment Morata is happy. Whether he'll stay or not, you have to ask Real Madrid.
"But as things stand he's a Madrid player from 1 July."
