OFFICIAL: Juventus sign Simone Zaza from Sassuolo

July 7, 2015 - 6:26 pm

Juventus have confirmed the transfer of Simone Zaza from Sassuolo in a deal worth €18m.

Juve originally purchased Zaza for €3.5m in 2013 before selling him back to Sassuolo for €7.5m while retaining a buy-back option on the striker for €18 million by 30 June 2016.

Both clubs confirmed the deal earlier today with the Bianconeri set to pay €18m in instalments spread over the next three years, while Zaza will sign a five-year contract.

24-year-old Zaza has scored 50 goals in a seven year career in a total of 132 appearances.

    €18m seems too much to me, even if it’s paid in instalments.

      I’d pay 18m for Darmian.

        Yeah, but that’s a different story.

      They paid 7.5m for him last year. That makes it better right?

      No. He is not. He couldn’t hold Montolivo’s underwear, and that’s like the worst European play maker I’ve ever seen.

    Finally something we didn’t have for a long time, left footed strikers (and there’s 2 of them now)

    I think Zaza proves a lot of the doubters wrong this year

    Darmian gone to Utd for 20m
    New interest is in Vrsaljko of Sassuolo – I’d be happy with a deal like that.

    Also talk of Allegri wanting to evaluate Isla….so he may not be leaving

      Bring in Vrsaljko and dump Isla. This is our chance to sell him after Copa America

        100% agree. We can make a decent return on him and use the money for a good replacement

      Vrsaljko wouldn’t be bad for RB behind Licht and Caceres. Isla needs to go. He’s still worth a little to someone, or could be a good bargaining chip in a player swap deal. I wouldn’t mind staying in Serie A for a LB too. Alonso of Fiorentina and Rui of Empoli would be solid, young LBs to pick up for cheap. Lots of potential in both.

    I’m happy with Zaza. The price is a little high, but i rly think he will do well. He is a mature guy so if he can handle the pressure we all know what he can do.
    Welcome Simone.

      In an interview, Mister Lippi said that Zaza as a player really excites him and expects him to do good things with us. That made me feel better
