Hier Tuttosport – Xavier Jacobelli:

Every Monday the editors of tuttojuve.com analyzes the hot topics of our football with one of the most authoritative names in Italian sports journalism, Xaver Jacobelli, director of Tuttosport. Here is his speech:

“Seven days after the winter transfer market closed, it is clear: Juve are trying to sign Dusan Vlahovic immediately. To achieve this, they leave no stone unturned. The Juventus proposal is clear: 60 million euros for the uninterested Fiorentina.” to the technical opponents, also because Ikoné and above all Piatek are two clear indications of how far the Viola club has advanced to Vlahovic Two reasons: 1) The 400 million euro capital increase carried out at the end of 2021 was of a conservative nature, i.e. it was launched to rebalance the company accounts badly damaged by the pandemic 2) The possible sales of Bentancur to Aston Villa and Ramsey , also in the Premier League, would provide Juve with a substantial part of the investment in the 21-year-old Serbian bomber. Who, for the avoidance of doubt, has already rejected Arsenal’s proposal.

Vlahovic chose Juve and Fiorentina understood it so well that Barone, Commisso’s right-hand man, made it clear even before the Cagliari game: “We talk about Vlahovic every day. We are open to all players and their entourage. It’s about the future of a group, a fan and a whole city, that’s what we have to focus on.

The general manager added that he had not received an offer and fitted perfectly into the game of parts: when a negotiation is underway, no one puts it on the street. However, from a purely financial point of view, Fiorentina knows how much more advantageous it would be to sell the player until January 31, who does not want to extend his contract, which expires on June 30, 2023. It is precisely for this reason that his current rating would be so significantly higher than that of next June, without forgetting that from January 1st next year, if he were still a viola, he would still be free to come to an agreement with another team: free for the buyer, no collection for the viola.

It’s understandable why these are pivotal days in the Fiorentina-Vlahovic-Juve triangle, with the latter more than ever in need of a striker to finally make him more successful. There is one from Ronaldo and the average of 33 goals per season Cristiano guaranteed for the Bianconeri during his three years in Turin was downright spectacular. But Vlahovic has been traveling at a sidereal pace this season: between the Liga and Coppa Italia, the Serbia international has made 24 appearances and scored 20 goals. We understand why Juve want him and why Fiorentina can sell him knowing his intentions. Even now. But its weight in gold”.
