Juventus place bid for Shkodran Mustafi

June 27, 2014 - 1:39 pm

Juventus have reportedly submitted a first offer for Sampdoria defender Shkodran Mustafi.

Mustafi joined the Blucerchiati as a free transfer in 2012, despite being on the books at Everton from 2009 until he was released by then manager, David Moyes.  He made 17 league appearances in hist first term with Sampdoria but featured regularly last season when he played 31 games and scored once. The talented centre back also earned a place  in Germany’s World Cup 2014 provisional squad before being called up to the tournament proper following the injury to Marco Reus.

22-year-old Mustafi has caught the attention of a number of teams this summer but Juve have supposedly moved first. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Bianconeri have tabled an offer of €6m for the player.

      I doubt it – Might be used as a counterweight in deals for other players

    If Barza is going to do his operation, that means he won’t be available for about 3 months, then it’s necessary to sign this guy

      He’s having a great season so far – Did well at Sampdoria, now in the national team, next up, Juve ! Seriously though, if we switch to this 4-3-3 that everyone keeps thinking, we will have Caceres, Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini, Ogbonna all to play at CB. I think if they buy mustafi, they will leave him there on loan.

        He’s a big prospect, and he’s also better than Astori, Savic, Ranocchia and other names we’ve been linked with

        As long as we don’t chose to co-own him together with Sampdoria.

            you can renew existing co-ownerships but you can’t make any new ones. the existing co-ownerships have to be solved by next summer. so by the start of the 2015 summer transfer window, there won’t be any co owned players

    So a translated rumour from today’s tuttosport

    Raiola tempts Juve with Balotelli: Do you want him for free?
    Agent prepared to buy the striker via a financial institution and then loan him to the Bianconeri
    Conte is against the idea, as are his Azzurri teammates at the World Cup

    He may have come in for a lot of unnecessary blame at the World Cup but why would we be against the idea? What do we have to lose? He would be brilliant on a loan and then if he does well we can buy him of not, we’ve lost nothing.

      I read this too – Raiola wants to buy out his contract and him as a player then let him play at Juve for free !
      I also read that Conte wouldn’t want him at Juventus

          Buffon and Conte saying these things, we should just listen to them. Balotelli was a monster at the world cup and not in a good way, and the ones who know best about this are the players who were there with Italy.

            I can’t blame him for the frustration he showed at the WC tbh and he kept it off the pitch which was more than other players manage (not talking about any Italy players )

            He nearly beheaded an Uruguay player on the pitch with a retarded flying kick. He should have been send off instead of Marchisio.

            No intent, yet he nearly took the guys head off. It means he has no self control and goes in just like that. Should be punished with red so he can learn his lesson.

          That was just an interpretation of buffons words about the younger players at the World Cup but Buffon said today that he didn’t consider balotelli as a young player

        Too good to be true but it’s not so ething I’d put past raiola.. There is no doubting balotelli so ability and potential so after a good season with us he could make quite the profit

      I dont think people blame him for the poor world cup, we blame him for the sh*t effort he put in. Hes playing for his nation in the grandest stage of them all and it looks like he doesnt even wanna play, yet when he gets subbed off, he has the audacity to open his mouth and start talking nonsense.

      Its very frustrating Marc. There are people who risk it all and completely over work their bodies/play through injuries or to point that their muscles are pulling/ fatigued, joints are in pain and yet they carry on playing in hopes that one day their dream will come true… Then you have that dick head Balotelli who just thinks that football is just another job comparable to that of a mail man and puts in like 10 % effort in a damn world cup.

      Idk how you would still accept him, your a major Italian supporter and he showed close to zero love for the Azzuri shirt.

        On the field he didn’t lack effort, certainly not against uruarguy, he was the one player who looked like he was actually there to play for the win. The only game he even remotely looked like he lacked commitment was vs Costa Rica when the tactics employed left him completely isolated.

        You’ve obviously been swayed by the media because practically all of what you said there was BS John (still love ya though! lol)

          Idk maybe i remember the costa rica game for the uruguay game, but i just dont remember any effort coming from him at all.

          And i made up my mind up about him right after the Uruguay game so i really dont think the media had any influence in my opinion.

            Against Uruguay he was driving forward at every opportunity which is a lot more than we can say for immobile who was invisible. Costa Rica he was completely isolated which was 100% a tactical fail

          Don’t try to sweet talk Balotelli out of this. That’s his job anyway. He was pure crap and not only did he not do well, even though he scored against England, he didn’t even try to do well, just like John said.

            I’m not trying to sweet talk him out of anything, he tried hard but when he is playing as a lone striker and being isolated there is little he can do.
