Real Madrid sell Morata to Juve, loan Casemiro to FC Porto
Real Madrid said Saturday they have sold Spanish under 21 striker Alvaro Morata to Juventus and were loaning Brazilian midfielder Casemiro to FC Porto.
Morato has been a regular in Madrid's team this year and has scored 11 goals in 52 games for the side overall.
Italian champions Juventus confirmed the 21-year-old had signed a five-year deal worth 20 million euro ($27m) to be paid over three years which includes a buy-back clause.
The 22-year-old Casemiro played 25 games for Madrid in 2013-2014, but only started four of those.
Competition for Real midfield places is heating up with the arrival of German World Cup winner Toni Kroos this week.
The Real-Porto accord includes an option to buy. Porto have already bought Dutch defender Bruno Martins Indi this week and taken attacker Cristian Tello on a two-year loan from Barcelona.
