Juventus stalemate over asking price likely to boost Barcelona

July 31, 2021 - 10:50 am

Barcelona are keen to shift some of their larger wages this summer, and with Juventus and Sassuolo struggling to agree terms over a deal for Manuel Locatelli, Pjanic’s return to Turin looks likely.

Arsenal and Liverpool are also believed to be interested in a deal to sign the Euro 2020 standout star, with the former believed to have tried and failed with at least one offer this summer already, whilst we appear to be struggling to strike a deal with the Neroverdi.

The player is believed to have made his intentions clear, that he wants to be playing at the Allianz Stadium come the new season, but he may well have to rethink his options if we are not willing to come to a fair agreement with his current club.

The potential signing of Pjanic could well be the reason why we are not willing to pay over our valuation of the midfielder, with the believe that our former player is not only keen to return to the Bianconeri, but with the belief that the Catalan club will allow him to leave for a minor fee, if not for free, in order to remove his wage from the budget.

The signing of Locatelli is mentioned as the priority, but with La Gazzetta(via TuttoJuve) reporting that neither us or Sassuolo were willing to change our stance during yesterday’s negotiations tells me that we seriously considering the cheaper alternative, especially with our struggling financial situation made public in recent months.

    Nugent is inability to conduct a transfer. Come on Nugent is you are getting a player that is just age 23 for only 40 million euros. You can get a full 10 years out of this guy. He’s a team player not selfish like the 100million euros ronaldo who even can’t help juventus win the champion league and successfully defend their sucdetto.

    Mr. Agnelli don’t make another mistake again. Just to remind you Allegri sacking blew up in your face.
    I can give great advice. Sign locatelli and kiao jorge. Get rid of Aaron Ramsey and if possible ronaldo. Just cut your losses now. The Ronald project has failed tremendously. We did not bring him for him to run the club.
