Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata is reportedly poised to pen a new deal with the club, potentially ending speculation over a move to Arsenal or Chelsea.

Morata returned to Madrid recently after the club activated his buyback clause, ending a two-year stint with Juventus.

While there’s been speculation aplenty about the player’s future, according to Marco Ruiz of AS, the Spain international is set to commit his future to the capital club in the form of a five-year contract with an annual salary of €6 million (£5 million).

“Morata will sign the new contract even if Florentino Perez, who will be out of town from Sunday, is not around as Jose Angel Sanchez will be in charge of such matters,” Ruiz noted, also adding the player’s deal could contain the option for a sixth year.

As noted in the piece, Arsenal and Chelsea have both been linked with moves for the striker, who will face stiff competition for a starting spot at the Santiago Bernabeu. Here is a look at some of his highlights during the spell in Turin:
