Alvaro Morata says that although his desire is to make it with Real Madrid, his future may lie elsewhere with ‘tempting’ offers from England.
The 23 year old has been long linked with Arsenal, and rumours this summer say that the 2016 Champions League winners will exercise a contract clause, buy him back from Juventus for a fixed fee, then sell him at a profit to the Gunners who are in the market for a new striker.
The Spain international has spent the last two seasons at Juventus, and says that playing regularly is a priority for him at this point in his career.
“My wish is to succeed in Madrid, but in Madrid there are great players,” he told AS. “And what I want is to play and feel important. Next year I’ll play on the team that is more likely to give me that [playing time].”
Hinting that it may well be in the Premier League, he continued, “There are some deals that are tempting in England, not only by the contract on offer. I think for my characteristics the Premier League would be a great destination.
“Going to play there would not be a step backwards, backwards. With what I have learned in Italy, if I have the chance to learn something more in England I think it would make me a better, more complete player.
“I’m 23 and I want is to progress, to play, to learn from the best players and to have a good career.”
Whether that’s at Arsenal or somewhere else, we’ll have to wait and see.
