Juventus consider three-man exodus to fund €200m swoop for midfield ace

Posted by

Juventus are reportedly considering selling Daniele Rugani, Gonzalo Higuain and Miralem Pjanic to fund a €200m move for Lazio ace Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Bianconeri have arguably already made the signing of the summer having officially unveiled Cristiano Ronaldo last week after his move from Real Madrid.

Having won the last seven Serie A titles, adding the Portuguese superstar would seemingly be enough to help them sustain that success domestically while also giving them the potential catalyst to end their agonising 22-year wait for glory in Europe.

According to Calciomercato though, via SportItalia, their transfer business may not be over yet as they’ve been linked with offloading Rugani, Higuain and Pjanic and using the funds generated from those sales to swoop for Milinkovic-Savic in a €200m deal.

It’s added that a €100m offer for Pjanic would be necessary to raise the funds required to potentially prise the Serbian international away from the Stadio Olimpico.

With that in mind, it seems like a hopeful transfer transfer strategy for the time being given it ultimately all hinges on how much they can receive from the sales of the trio in question.

While it would weaken Massimiliano Allegri’s squad in terms of taking away quality and depth, it could be argued that they have the players necessary to continue to compete on multiple fronts moving forward.

Milinkovic-Savic would undoubtedly be a star signing in his own right too, with the 23-year-old emerging as one of the most talented young stars in Europe with his performances for Lazio as he bagged 14 goals and nine assists in 48 appearances last season.

Coupled with his technical quality, physicality, agility and room for improvement, he could another pillar on which Juve can build their future success while also adding a player capable of making an immediate impact. Time will tell though if the pieces fall into place for the move to happen.
