Juventus look to secure another superstar from Barcelona after finalizing an exchange for Miralem Pjanic.
Juventus are planning to sign another Barcelona‘s promising youngster in this transfer window after already securing Arthur Melo.
The Catalan side decided to make a strange transfer this summer after agreeing to let their promising midfielder, Arthur, leaving for an aging Pjanic. The decision made many fans furious as to the philosophy of the club’s board in terms of their transfer plans but the Italian giants are far from done with exploiting the strange thinking of the Barca hierarchy.
The Serie A champions are planning to sign another youngster at Camp Nou, Ousmane Dembele. The French international was signed as a replacement for Neymar but quickly became a failed signing as one injury after another tainted his La Liga spell.
Barcelona spent 150 million euros to secure the youngster from Borussia Dortmund, which makes him one of the worst transfers for the Spanish giants as they are yet to play him on a regular basis, even though he has spent three years in Spain already.
Dembele is still struggling with an injury to date, and is now optimistic about making a return in this season’s Champions League campaign but will be unavailable for the second-leg clash against Napoli.
Coach Quique Setien looks forward to his return as he needs every player possible for the tough Champions League campaign ahead but after massively dropping his market value due to his reoccurring injuries, it is possible that another European elite will look to convince the Catalans to make a sale.
Juventus are one such team as both Douglas Costa and Federico Bernardeschi are tipped to depart in this transfer window. Dembele could be the perfect addition to create an elite attacking trio of Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo. It remains to be seen how much the Italian side will have to pay the Spanish giants and whether they desire his departure ahead of next season.
