Juventus have been keeping tabs on Shakhtar Donetsk’s talent Georgiy Sudakov, but it’ll be arduous to purchase him in January. Director Cristiano Giuntoli scouted him in person during the recent Ukraine matches. He was very impressed with what he saw, TuttoSport informs.
On the other hand, his stellar showings drive up the request from his side and intensify the competition. His price tag is currently €30M. It could perhaps be negotiated down to €25M, finding a formula that could suit both clubs.
At this stage, Juventus have shown interest but haven’t opened talks to sign Sudakov. Exec Giovanni Manna hinted that they would try to add a new option in January talking to the press after receiving an award in Turin (via Il Messaggero).
“We’re extremely satisfied with the players in the squad and how the coach has valorized them. We’re always ready to evaluate opportunities but without Pindaric flights. The roster was conceived with two more midfielders, but we aren’t spasmodically searching for a player now.”
Manna stated that the Frosinone loanee would stay put.
“I think that those who started a journey should have the chance end it, especially if it is virtuous, as in Matias Soulé and Enzo Barrenechea’s cases. We don’t want to interrupt the good they are doing.”
“Our goal is to qualify for the next Champions League, then it’s normal for Juventus to compete to the best of their capabilities every time.”
