Juventus complete Mario Lemina signing

August 31, 2015 - 3:29 pm

Juventus have completed the signing of Marseille midfielder Mario Lemina.

The Bianconeri  have been working on a number of transfer deals to beef up their depleted midfield following the departures of Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal.

Injuries to Claudio Marchisio and Sami Khedira have left the Bianconeri with limited options in the centre of the park.

21-year-old Lemina has completed his Juve medical and is expected to join on a year-long loan deal costing €1.5m with an option to purchase set at €10m.

    Don’t know him. Looks interesting tho. Not a fan of playing people before they have settled into the team. But at this point, just start this guy over Padoin. I will cry if I see Padoin in our starting XI ever again.

    Great signing. He can hopefully plug in and have in impact very quickly. I’m sure even Padoin is happy not to have to play a role he is not capable of.

    Dont know Lemina but I already hope he replaces Padoin. I guess we also have a Brazilian international to warm the bench now, why the hell we bought that guy is beyond me. Are we this desperate already or something?

      Excatly.. 11 mill euro for Hernandes, seems like a big waste of money. 11 mill euro for a 30 years old bench warmer.

        Hernanes is useless, already waiting for the day he leaves again. And again we have loaned De Ceglie and Isla, only Isla with option to buy. Sigh

      Hernanes is actually pretty good. For 11m he isnt bad, and will be sold in a couple seasons for about 75% of that, so we wont miss out on too much, and he will do well with us. Hes not who we all hoped for, but I can tell you right now that he is better than Draxler currently is, and understands the league and tactics we will be using.

        I doubt we will get that much for him when he is around 32-33 years old man.. He already isnt what he was at Lazio. Wasnt waiting for Draxler either but he does have the potential to become huge, if he can stay fit. Hernanes is spent, but we will see how he does I guess.

        Giving him a chance to prove himself, but i dont expect much

        Hernanes is Inter Merda. I cannot believe we signed him.

            But when he signed for Inter he snubbed Juve saying he was not signing with Juve because of our shady scandalous past. Since then Ive written Hernanes off.

            Well, I didn’t know about that, but I think if he really meant that he wouldn’t have signed now. Anyway, I hope he will impress even you. 😛

    Marchisio, Pogba, Khedira, Pereyra, Lemina, Hernanes, Sturaro, Asamoah, Padoloseseverygame. Looks like they already know Asa and Padocan’t are leaving next season. My guess is Asa and Padolame are gone next summer, and Sturaro, possibly Lemina, get loans in January or next season, and they spend big next season on a star CM.

      Padoin’s contract will end next summer, so we can get rid of him finally, but IMO it would be a shame to see Asamoah leave too.

        Why should Asamoah leave us?

      I love what you did there, but Padodumbass might stick around for the rest of his carreer, maybe we’ll get rid of Pogba and Marchisio so we can finance Padoabsolutelynotawesome his salary. He may even become Padojuvelegend!

    When hernanes joined Inter a year ago or whenever. He said he didnt choose Juve because we had a tarnished history and he didn’t like the club for that.

    For whatever reason he said that. Could have been genuine, out of petty because we didn’t push hard for his signing, or whatever other crazy reason.

    Either way it means hes a mercenary, dis-loyal, crazy, or hes just plain anti-Juve. Makes me unhappy to ever see him in black and white. I think Bepe was foolish with this signing. One made totally out of the teams character.

      I hope it is only a loan deal and he doesn’t end up playing. Going back in January or next summer.

          I heard initially that he would be loaned with option to buy.

        It is rare. But helping inter offload weight with a player who has disrepected our club in the past is bad taste by Bepe.

        Though I dont see him staying longer than a year for the loan so i guess it is all pretty moot anyways. This season will be about winning scudetto and getting through group stages. Anything else is a bonus.

      If he’s plain anti-Juve, he wouldn’t have joined us now. I have no clue why he would say that, probably to please the Inter fans, but yeah it was a dumb thing to do for him.

        As i said. Either way it doesnt matter to me. Whatever reasoning it would be poor. Signing is not Juve.

    I heard this Lemina guy is actually friends with Pogba, so this might be Marotta’s way to keep Pogba happy. I also heard he’s a talent too, so who knows.
