Juventus striker Alvaro Morata has signed a new contract with the club, committing him to the Turin giants until June 2020.

Morata’s existing deal had been due to expire in 2019, but the latest agreement will see him remain contracted at Juventus Stadium for a further 12 months.

The Spain international was a key figure as Juve retained the Serie A crown last season, scoring 15 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions.

Morata has struggled to replicate that form this term, finding the net just once in the league and losing his place in Massimiliano Allegri’s starting XI.

However, speaking last week, Allegri said: “Morata is an extraordinary player and needs to remain calm.

“I ask a lot of him, but the same goes for the rest of the team.”

Morata joined Juve from Real Madrid in 2014 and was subject to a buy-back clause, but it is not clear whether his new contract will affect any such arrangement.

Juve sit fifth in Serie A and face high-flying Fiorentina on Sunday.
