Juventus complete Matheus Pereira deal ?

May 13, 2016 - 8:04 pm

Juventus have reportedly agreed terms for the transfer of Corinthians starlet Matheus Pereira.

The young Brazilian playmaker was heavily linked with a move to Turin at the start of the year, and a deal between Juve and Corinthians seems to be close to fruition.

Pereira was pictured on his way to Turin earlier in the week, and the latest report from transfer journalist Gianluca Di Marzio suggests that he could be close to completing his move.

The Bianconeri are reported to have sealed a deal with Corinthians and the player, the only snag is his non-EU status.

As a workaround, Juve are working with Empoli in synergy to bring the player to Italy where he would spend time with the Azzurri before eventually joining Juventus.

Here’s another snazzy youtube compilation, complete with europop music to whet our collective apetities:

      On a side note, it looks like Tonelli is gone to Napoli.

        Yes I read it too – it doesnt bother me too much, he was last on my little list anyway, he is 26 and not yet an Azzurri

          Agreed, not a huge loss for us, but a good buy for them.

    I just read something about Morata wanting to join United next season if Mourinho becomes their coach… It was him who gave Morata his debute.

    Sigh, deep sigh.

    The article also stated Morata is slighty annoyed about his limited role this season.

      It’s Morata’s own fault he wasn’t a starter this season. He didn’t deserve it. There was a time when he went 20 games without a goal, if he still expects to be a regular starter after that then I have to question his mentality.

      But let’s reserve judgement on him till any official news comes out. If Pogba was to do the things he is rumoured to do, then he would hate Italy, hate Juve, and be in London right now signing for Chelsea who have no European football next season.

        Indeed, he wasnt doing well after his break-up with his lady.

        But I agree to your wise conclusion, this is all just rumours. We’ll see what happens.

          I know too well that when your lady let’s you go, it’s not a great feeling. I sympathized with him, but his personal life shouldn’t affect his career, scoring goals is his day job anyway. Although I might sound like I’m being tough on him, there’s almost no one I would want to replace him with.

            I want Morata over any possible deal, but he has to want it too.

            Personal life shouldnt affect his career, but we all know it does affect it, pretty sure everyone has experienced something that affected you ln the job.

            Its only normal, it takes some time. But you need to get over it at one point and the sooner that is, the better.

    I’m not really impressed by the looks of the video. Coman was a skillful talent, but this guy seems average at best.

    Has promise and is very young so maybe this is a good buy. Only thing I don’t like is that he seems to be really slow…. Interesting transfer with him and Rogerio, good prospects but what will turn of them I guess time will tell. This kid has excellent passing skills, seems like a good dribbler but his shooting is average, pace is below average…

    It’s a lot of young talent. If Juventus can catch some Brazilian youths. That would have changed the style of play that would be faster and more enjoyable for spectators. https://youtu.be/90jac0mZ_7E
