A pair of head-turning transfer stories centering on Italian giants Juventus have come to the fore on Sunday evening.
The first centers on the ongoing speculation surrounding frontman Dusan Vlahovic.
Serbian international Vlahovic has of course been hotly tipped for an exit from the Allianz Stadium this summer, just 18 months on from his big-money arrival.
This comes with Juve struggling for funds, and Romelu Lukaku having seemingly been lined up as a significantly cheaper replacement.
To this point, one clear frontrunner has, in turn, emerged in the race for the 23-year-old, in the form of French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
The powers that be at the Parc des Princes are desperate for a marquee attacking signing this summer, with Kylian Mbappe seemingly poised to follow Lionel Messi out the exit door.
Just today, in fact, outlets in France went as far as to claim that Vlahovic has already reached an agreement on the personal terms of a contract with PSG.
If the latest actions on the part of a group of the capital outfit’s supporters are anything to go by, however, then the former Fiorentina star may be forced to rethink a move to Ligue 1.
Taking to social media on Sunday evening, PSG’s Ultras unveiled a banner, with a message for Vlahovic.
The message in question reads as follows:
“You come to Paris, we cut your three fingers off!”
This comes owing to previous actions on Vlahovic’s part, which saw the hitman don a shirt showcasing Kosovo as part of Serbia, as well as unveil a three-finger celebration intended to symbolise ‘Serbian victory’:
Turning attentions towards confirmed transfers, the other headline news in Turin tonight comes in the form of a blow for all of a Juve persuasion.
Juan Cuadrado, fresh off a glittering eight-year stint in Bianconeri colours, has opted to cross the Derby d’Italia divide, to link up with arch rivals, Inter Milan.
Versatile winger/full-back Cuadrado was widely expected to take his talents to either Turkey or Saudi Arabia this summer, on the back of the expiration of his contract at the Allianz Stadium.
Instead, though, bombshell confirmation has arrived that the Colombian is primed to put pen-to-paper on terms at San Siro.
The deal in question is expected to run through the summer of 2024, with Cuadrado set to replace Raoul Bellanova in Simone Inzaghi’s Inter squad.
