HERE WE GO!
Dusan Vlahović’s move to Juventus is imminent after reports emerged on Thursday night of the deal being completed “from all points of view”.
After sauntering through the opening three weeks of the January transfer window, Juve dropped a bomb on Monday night as news surfaced of an initial proposal being readied for the seemingly out of reach Serbian.
The club’s desperation to qualify for the Champions League next season combined with the riches of owner John Elkann are said to be key factors in the club pursuing a move with a matter of immediacy. By Tuesday lunchtime, their mammoth €75m offer was accepted by Fiorentina which left the mere formalities as the final barrier in Vlahović becoming a Juventus player.
Juventus’ deal for Dusan Vlahović is complete from “all points of view”
On Thursday evening, the reliable Romeo Agresti broke the news that an agreement had been reached with Vlahović’s entourage before reporting that the deal is now complete “from all points of view“.
He added: “…there is no longer the slightest doubt: Dusan Vlahović will be a Juventus player.”
The striker is expected to sign a four-and-half year deal with the Bianconeri worth €7m-a-year. An official announcement is now subject to a medical, which is expected to take place in the next 48 hours providing that Vlahović tests negative for COVID-19. The Serb was out of action last weekend after testing positive for the virus.
Nevertheless, not even COVID will prevent the 21-year-old from signing for the Bianconeri. The towering striker is the supreme focal point that Massimiliano Allegri loves, and the manager is expected to have Vlahović available for Juventus’ next Serie A clash against Hellas Verona on February 6.
