Juventus close to signing Juan Iturbe

July 2, 2014 - 8:21 am

Juventus are edging ever closer to signing Argentine Juan Iturbe from Hellas Verona.

Reports from Italy suggest Juventus are firmly ahead of AC Milan in the race to sign the pacey winger. Juventus director Beppe Marotta met with representatives of the player yesterday and has agreed a deal that would earn the player €1.5m per year  which could reach €2.5m including performance related bonuses.

Juventus have reportedly raised their offer to €23m and Verona are now prepared to reduce their demands from €30m to €27m. An agreement is expected to be drawn out today or tomorrow with the club to finalise the players move to Turin.

Iturbe was a key part of Verona’s fine run last season with his explosive wing play :

    Fantastic signing if it all comes off. Younger than Sanchez, lots of promise.

      Looks nice, even if really expensive. I wanted Sanchez but if we get Iturbe, I won’t complain 😛 21years old, great stuff

    I wonder. Have never seen him play myself. Well maybe with Verona, but i didn’t know it was him.

    he has lots of promise and all but sanchez is a far more proven player. iturbe has only had one good season so far. he looks like an interesting player but it’ll be a disappointment to see sanchez go considering he’d be the perfect winger for conte

      As a newcastle united fan…. juventus must buy either sanchez/shaqiri for the left wing and i think they should get juan manuel iturbe a.s.a.p but €30million is not worth it…but offering €21million and a player is a good deal for verona given the fact they just bought the boy

        We’re doing something around 25mill and Quagliarella, we’ll just have to wait and see how this turns out 😛

    I get the sense that Iturbe will explode under Conte’s management , He already has a tactical mind , Just take a look at his moves!! , I don’t think that he isn’t worth of 30 MLN , He is just 21 & would be a successful investment for the future
