​Juventus striker Alvaro Morata has confirmed that he is in talks with the Italian champions over extending his stay in Turin, according to ​Cadena Ser.

The former Real Madrid youngster moved to Turin in 2014 after failing to earn a regular place in the Real team, and he has impressed with his performances since joining up with the Serie A giants. It was reported that Morata's contract included a buy-back clause for Real to meet if they wished, but Morata has no intention of returning at the moment.

Instead, he's looking to commit his future to Juventus and insists everything is going well in terms of the discussions over a new deal. He said: "I'm discussing a contract renewal with Juventus and everything is going smoothly."

Juve, however, struggled at the start of the season in Serie A but have embarked on a recent mini-revival, with back-to-back victories against Empoli and Torino taking them up to seventh in Serie A and nine points off the league leaders as it stands.

New signing Alex Sandro believes the club are improving and will soon find themselves back in title contention if they continue with their upturn in form.

He told ​Juventus TV“Juventus aren’t used to finding themselves in their current league position, but we’ll improve and show what we’re capable of producing out on the pitch. 

"Our recent victories over Empoli and Torino were very important. The Italian league is a very tough one, every opponent represents a real challenge, and the division’s prestige continues to grow year on year.

“It will be a tough game against Milan (on November 21), we need to win and put in a great performance. We’re doing well in Europe and have a crucial clash with Manchester City coming up. We must be focused because we want to get through to the next round as group winners.

“I’m really living my dream here. It’s fantastic to be at Juventus, playing at Juventus Stadium gives you a real boost and makes you feel at home.”
