It’s not going to come as much of a surprise to most, but Real Madrid has recalled one of the world’s best young striking assets from Juventus.

Real had the rights to buy back the in-demand attacker from Juve for around $26 million, and could resell him for much more. Conservatively speaking, his value could be 1.5 times that fee.

Morata, 23, scored 27 goals in two seasons with Juve.

From Real Madrid’s site:

Real Madrid C. F. have informed Juventus FC of their decision to salvage the federative rights on the player Álvaro Morata, who will join up with the first team for pre-season training under the command of Zinedine Zidane.

So the rich get richer… and they could get richer.
