Whether Atlético will keep Morata when his two-year loan with Juventus expired has been questioned. According to reports, some teams, notably Juventus and Manchester United, had expressed interest.
Atlético finally decided it was worthwhile to keep the 29-year-old striker after Morata dazzled throughout the preseason, which included a hat trick against Juventus. Morata declared, "I don't need to convey any messages. "I must continue working for my team and myself. It was crucial, to begin with success. It's going to be a terrific year, in my opinion.
On Monday, Morata didn't need much time to prove Atlético was correct. After receiving a fantastic one-touch pass from Joo Félix, he scored in the 15th minute with a well-placed low shot from the top of the box. In the 59th, he received another outstanding assist from the young Portuguese player to score from inside the area.
