Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata makes a decision to lower wage demands in order to push through move to join Juventus next summer.

According to the Metro, incoming Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri wants Morata to leave to create space for Gonzalo Higuain and the Spain striker is interested in joining Juventus after his first season at Chelsea turned out sour, following his poor displays at the club. The season has been a frustrating one for Morata who failed to find the back of the net in most of the games he played in the Premier League.

The report by the Corriere dello Sport via Juvefc.com says the former Real Madrid forward will lower his €9m annual salary to join the Turin giants on loan for another two years.

If the move goes through, Morata will reunite with his former teammates at Juventus after leaving the club two years ago to join his hometown club Real Madrid.

Juve want to take him on loan for two years before signing him permanently in 2020, as they seek to beef up their overall average age, after Morata’s arrival will signal the end of Mario Mandzukic at the club.
