Juventus have officially confirmed the arrival of Marko Pjaca on a five-year contract.

The Croatian winger will cost the Bianconeri €23m, joining from Dinamo Zagreb amid strong interest from Liverpool and AC Milan. According to various reports in Italy, the players desire to join Juventus played an important part in the transfer process.

A visit to the JMedical centre was quickly followed by a contract signing and his presentation via the clubs official website. A statement confirmed the details of the deal:

“Juventus Football Club can today confirm that Marko Pjaca has completed a permanent switch from Dinamo Zagreb for a fee of €23 million, to be paid over two financial years. The 21-year-old has signed a five-year contract with the club.”

Pjaca is not expected to join the team on their tour of Australia, taking a weeks’ vacation before joining pre-season training at Vinovo on 28th July.

    Lol there´s the following headline “Man U buy Pogba for record fee” from a site called Radio New Zealand. (Didn´t even bother to click it to check it out).

    Sigh… yeah right like a hipotetical breaking news headline on the matter would come out of new zealand (Maybe only if TGP breaks the news). They really think people are that naive.

      Whilst we are first past the post when it comes to New Year, down on this barren hunk of rock on the tail-end of the home we call Earth, its likely the other way round when it comes to meaningful happenings on a global scale…yet who can say, comrade? Perhaps there is a kiwi with special connections to Pogba in that hot spot of global football over the Tasman in Aotearoa.

      I am beginning to think there may be some effort to bring in Hernandez…a mexican fox in the box who would be a very welcome addition to the ranks I believe.

        Just so that I am not misunderstood my impression is New Zealand is a wonderful place which makes me a bit envious of you (In a good way. i am happy for you mate) being able to hang around there. Still I think yesterday or today Raiola debunked baseless rumours,

        Obviously there is some kind of conversation or procedures going on since Man u placed a formal bid. But so far it seems that is still what it is, a rejected bid.

        So for now I stand my ground that i think Paul is much more in than out. Besides if he were to leave I don´t think man u would be his destination.

        And finally in A. Agnelli´s 90 min interview from not that long ago he said if Juve want to conquer new markets (Asian Specially) iwe need to keep hold of Paul who is pretty much the only media star on the team. Paulo Dybala might beat Paul by an inch as the most promising talent ont he team but on the media front Paul is way ahead of the rest.

    So Barcelona signed Andre Gomes for 35m and can potentially be forced to pay another 20m for him.
    That means that Arda Turan aka The Turkish Magician is going to get even fewer minutes than he got last year. Do you guys think that we should try to get him for around 20m?

      Nah, he is very old, and slow, and had a horrible Euro, he’s also not that strong, we dont need him; but should we, i rather get Hakan Calhanoglu from Bayern04, He is a real Turkish Magician, and if we are picking at Barcelonas squad i rather pay 35 -45 for Rakatic, Infact, if we Sell Pogba we Really DESPERATLEY need Rakatic if we cant get James or Kroos

          Why not? He is Strong, Creative, Very good from distance, can carry the team on his shoulders, Same as Pogba, Rakatic and Kroos, But james is also the fastest of them all

        I read reports that we were offered Calhanoglu for around 20m but turned him down.
        This took place when we were asking for Javier Hernandez.

      idk all the top english clubs are after him as well and they outcash us…Its the same story with Mharez , he rejected his contract and is a free agent, but Barcelona and Man City are perusing him vigorously. But i agree we NEED both Lacazette and Mharez

    Just seen interview on Juve website. He’s a very level headed down to earth guy, as Balkans seem to be. I think he could be our new hero….
