Alvaro Morata 'on brink of Juve switch'
Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata is on the verge of joining Juventus, his agent has said.
Forward Morata, 21, is the Bianconeri's main summer target, although negotiations with his club are proving to be protracted and he has also been linked with Wolfsburg.
The Serie A champions are keen on taking him on loan for the season with an option to make the move permanent next summer.
Real would prefer to have the chance to sign him back in a year as they did with Daniel Carvajal, who spent a season at Bayer Leverkusen before being bought back for a predetermined fee last summer.
Morata's agent, Juanma Lopez, said he believed an agreement would soon be reached, with La Gazzetta dello Sport quoting him as saying: "Alvaro Morata is a little bit closer to joining Juve."
Lopez also said the player would not be moving to Germany, and told kicker: "Wolfsburg are without a chance. Alvaro wants to join Juve."
He said he hoped the deal could be completed "within the next one or two days."
Meanwhile, Juve appear to have cooled their interest in Juan Iturbe of Hellas Verona, despite being close to reaching an agreement with the 21-year-old's club.
Late last week, Iturbe said he was close to completing a transfer -- but Juve's pursuit of Morata is now taking priority.
But they are continuing their efforts to being in Patrice Evra from Manchester United, according to Tuttosport.
