Morata near to Juve move

REAL MADRID striker Alvaro Morata has revealed he is on the verge of a move to Juventus.

The forward is set to undergo a medical with the Serie A champions by the end of the week before signing a four-year contract, with the move believed to be worth around 322m.

Morata, behind Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Jese in the pecking order in Madrid's attack, was the subject of interest from Arsenal and Wolfsburg but revealed that Juventus have won the battle for his signature.

"I can't wait to get to Turin, everyone has told me it's a great city and I am looking forward to getting to know it," Morata said.
