Fabio Paratici, director of football at Juventus, said the Italian club was clear from the start that Alvaro Morata was their first choice in the summer transfer market.

Against Hellas Verona he was left with a sour taste in his mouth after his goal was disallowed.

In an interview with Sky Sport, football director Fabio Paratici explained Juventus’ plans and thoughts on the transfer market with the Madrid striker.

“Morata has always been a primary solution for us from the beginning. There was no approach from Atletico Madrid for a transfer, so we moved on to other players,” he said.

But Juventus never ruled out Morata and when the opportunity presented itself they went for him again: “We were lucky and it was good to get him”.

Atletico ended up giving up because they couldn’t find a way out for Diego Costa who chose to stay on and restore Diego Pablo Simeone’s confidence in him.
