Real Madrid are a crazy club to say the least, they let go of a young player who could do well in the future and buy him back, though this is a ploy that Barcelona have done but everyone knew Alvaro Morata would be a great player, if not a world beater, and letting him go to Juventus didn’t make sense except for the fact that the Spanish star got a few more games.
Now with Morata doing well at the Italian club and even for the Spanish squad, him coming back to Madrid, there are rumours that Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in singing him and that Los Galacticos will sell him if the right offer comes and made a tidy profit on him but the truth of the matter is that they should not try to sell him but keep him in the team for the upcoming La Liga season.
Madrid did struggle for a top goal scorer when Karim Benzema was not firing on all cylinders and it needed the likes of Jese Rodriguez and Lucas Vazquez to step up but the duo aren’t the most reliable when it comes to banging in the goals regularly.
Many would argue that the La Liga side do not need another striker since they have Benzema and the fact that Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo do the job more often than not. Last season, however, we saw that Ronaldo and Bale also were injured during various stages of the season and that had an adverse effect on the team.
Morata isn’t the most prolific scorer in the world of football but he does bring in a lot of hard-work to the team, something that Real need at the top of the order. The 23-year-old scored just 12 goals for Juventus last season in all competitions and provided nine assists as well. He is aggressive at the top of the attacked and his nine yellow cards are just proof that he is willing to go that extra mile for his team.
There is the durability factor coming in as well, Morata seems to be made of stern stuff and hardly misses out on games while Benzema has played less than 30 league games in the past two seasons, Morata was available for most of the games but he lost his position to the much more talented Paulo Dybala.
Morata’s time at Juve wasn’t just spent on the bench, he did learn a lot from some of the best strikers in the world such as Carlos Tevez and Mario Mandzukic, something that he can apply once he does get to full training with the Real side.
The good thing about Morata coming back to Real is that Benzema will finally have some decent competition for the top spot in the attack. The Frenchman might be first choice for now but at the rate the Spanish ace has been performing and growing over the past couple of seasons, he could well usurp Benzema and lead Real’s attack, just to prove a point that he is a Galactico.
