Morata: I don't know where I'll be next season, I'll be calmer once it's decided

The 2020/21 season has already come to an end and the European Championship is fast approaching, but Alvaro Morata still doesn't know where he'll be playing his club football next season.

Having ended the campaign as a Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana champion with Juventus, the Spaniard's future - and whether or not it's in Turin - is still to be confirmed.

"I don't know, I'm here now," Morata said to Radio MARCA, asked who he'd be working under next season.

"Juanma [his representative] takes care of everything. I don't have any news. He'll come to me and say 'you're playing here'. We've got a house in Madrid and are happy there. I'm calmer this summer than I've been for six or seven years. Once it's decided, I'll be even calmer."

With Juventus, the forward didn't always have an easy time over the course of the season, with the Bianconeri struggling in Serie A before confirming Champions League qualification on the final day of the season.

"I've been working hard all year, so hopefully," Morata said, asked if this would be his European Championship.

"I've been looking forward to being here. It's been a difficult year, but the season doesn't matter once you're with the national team. The important thing is that you've done well enough for the coach to choose you, and now you give your life to win."

The Juventus forward will wear the No.7 shirt this summer, which is something he takes a lot of pride from.

"I'm proud to wear the No.7 shirt for the national team," Morata said.

"It's a lot of responsibility.

"I've grown up watching forwards wear that number and dreaming of wearing that number. It motivates me a lot."

The decision to leave Sergio Ramos out of the squad was one that caught a lot of people by surprise, and the ex-Real Madrid forward was as taken aback as anybody.

"It's a pity that he wasn't at his best and that Luis Enrique made that decision," Morata said.

"We have a lot of love for him and we'll think of all of those who aren't with us, but we have to look ahead."

Although he insisted that he doesn't care what happens at Real Madrid anymore, the former Los Blancos forward did spare a thought for Zinedine Zidane.

"I respect him a lot," Morata said when asked about the Frenchman's exit.

"He was great with me and I chat to him every time I meet him.

"The truth is that I don't care too much about what happens at Real Madrid, but I wish him the best personally."
