The Morata-back-to-Juventus rumor isn’t going away and continues to circle around the electron superhighway, from England to Italy and back to England and back to Italy, and so on.
It’s been over a month since Rai Sport, Corriere dello Sport, and the Telegraph first waded in, while recently Tuttosport added some numbers to it. This potentially fateful but probably inconsequential information packet, has since been cycled, distributed, recycled, redistributed aggregated, re-aggregated, re-redistributed re-re-re-repeatedly over the past ten or so days.
Here’s Sky to keep the beachball bouncing yesterday. BREAKING: One-month-old rumor!

The specifics remain more or less the same as before. Juventus can’t afford anywhere near Morata’s price tag at the moment, so they want a loan-to-buy arrangement, which would eventually sort of, kind of approach what Chelsea paid last summer. There have been no serious indications that Chelsea would even consider selling Morata, let alone sit down to a table to negotiate an arrangement, but those are usually minor details as far as the rumor mill’s concerned.
In any case, this one’s still going, so here it is again.
That said, if Juventus want to send Paulo Dybala the other way, I wouldn’t complain. Giroud, Batshuayi, and Dybala would do just fine, thank you very much.
