Juventus have been handed a huge transfer blow given that Chelsea star Nemanja Matic is close to joining Manchester United for a fee exceeding € 45 million.
The Old Lady, however, is ready to welcome Federico Bernardeschi to Turin. Bianconeri and Fiorentina have agreed the player’s price-tag and the Italy star is set to undergo his medical on Monday morning.
Medical tests had initially been scheduled for tomorrow but the Old Lady has agreed to postpone them.
Bernardeschi will join Juventus for a € 40 million fee plus a 10% next sale clause. The 23-year-old has agreed a five-year, € 4 million-a-year deal.
Meantime, Juventus have met the agent of José Maria Gimenez who had also been linked with a move to Manchester United. The agent of the rock solid centre back has offered Gimenez to Juve and the Serie A giants are now considering the 22-year-old as a possible replacement for Bonucci.
