Indeed, the Colchoneros were waiting to recover a similar sum from Barça for Morata, something that Joan Laporta could not guarantee after having already negotiated a large option (over €50m) with Manchester City for Ferran Torres. Too bad for Xavi who will have to activate one of his backup plans…
