Juventus Transfer Update: 18th April 2013


Zlatan Ibrahimovic
According to Italian newspaper, La Gazetta, Ibrahimovic is looking to buy a house in Milan as he wants to live there. The Swede wants to live in Milan and commute to Turin to play for Juventus. This is something that Juventus wouldn’t accept. As mentioned yesterday, Ibrahimovic can only join Juventus he if leaves PSG on a free transfer and accepts a two year deal with an optional third at an annual net salary of 5 million euros. As we speak such a deal is highly improbable as he would rather shave his hair again than accept such a salary cut. It seems that Ibrahimovic stands a greater chance of joining one of the Milan based sides rather than Juventus. He has been offered to AC Milan to partner upfront with Balotelli which would mean the departure of El Shaarawy. On the other hand Inter Milan president, Massimo Moratti, wants to sign Ibrahimovic as he believes that he would change the performances of the squad overnight. The main obstacle Inter Milan may face is the lack of Champions League football, as we all know that Zlatan wants to win the Champions League. Here are the percentages for Ibra’s next move:
Milan 40%, Inter 35%, Juventus 25%

Today a Juventus delegation will meet a Real Madrid delegation. First they will discuss a friendly football tournament in summer to agree on the money both clubs will receive; this should only take 10 minutes. Then they will be discussing the transfer market for a few hours. Today Juventus will learn which Real Madrid players will be available for transfer this summer. Juventus and Real Madrid have an agreement at European level, that of not selling their best players to teams like Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Manchester City, Manchester United and PSG. Juventus are interested in four Real Madrid players which are Di Maria, Ozil, Marcelo and Raul Albiol. They will also discuss Schalke 04 player, Draxler, as both sides are interested in the German and they would like to avoid and competition between them. Marotta will try to convince Real Madrid to drop their interest in Draxler but it will all depend on the new manager. If Klopp will be Real’s new manager then Real Madrid will pursue the player. On the other hand, should Draxler join Real Madrid, Di Maria would head out. Juventus are very interested in Di Maria and he currently only earns 3 million net annually. Juventus are ready to pay him 4.5 million euros net a year. Lastly, Marotta called Benzema with the French striker being recommended by Deschamps to join Juventus where he would become a great player. Juventus are interested in signing Benzema either on a season long loan deal with an option to buy for 25 million euros or Lichsteiner plus 10 million euros or a swap deal with Marchisio.

Present Robben future Berardi
Juventus have made an official request to Bayern Munich for Dutch winger Arjen Robben. Today Bayern value Robben at 20 million euros but should they win the Champions League his value would increase. Andrea Agnelli is negotiating the signing of Robben personally. Robben has been on his wish list for many years and doesn’t want to end up empty handed again. Juventus are trying to include Lichsteiner in the deal with Bayern valuing the Swiss defender at 12 million euros.
Sassualo player, Domenico Berardi, will be joining Juventus in 2014 when he will be learning the trade from Robben. Although Juventus are trying to convince Sassuolo to let the talented youngster join them in 2013. Juventus are trying to convince Sassuolo by offering several youngsters such as Masi, Chisbah, Fausto Rossi and others.
