Sampdoria and Juventus have confirmed the deal for Patrik Schick has been cancelled.

There’s been a suggestion that the player had a previously undiagnosed medical condition which impacted Juve’s decision on signing him.

After further talks in Rome this evening, the clubs have agreed Schick will not be joining Juventus on mutual grounds.

A statement on Sampdoria’s website confirmed the decision:

“UC Sampdoria and Juventus FC both announce that it was mutually agreed not to finalise the transfer of player Patrik Schick.”

          No is isn’t. We know you love him GQ, but would have thought the way we shut him down in the semi’s shows what his problem is – one dimensional, running in with ball to the box. Alvaro is much better with half chances, in or outside the box. Coming to him or having the ball already. Replay his goal 2 seasons back against Man City at Etihad. That is what he can do that Mbappe can’t. He has big match feel, and is already proven with us.

    Wait i dont understand our rejection….so he has a heart problem? Why can’t he just play and die for us? the 25M we where paying isn’t bad even if it is just for 2 years. and what if he doesnt die for another 5?

    is this meaning, Juve will not buy any new striker, and Mandzukic will be sub for Higuain?
    Cuadrado/Pjaca/Douglas/Berna(?)/Dybala/(Lemina?) … if we sell Lemina (hope so, don’t like him as a winger) we certainly need one extra winger (could it be KEITA PLEASE if no Schick, Please Keita)

    You have to feel for him. His dream move over, his career now in doubt. Got to be a sickening feeling right now.
