Juventus Exec Giuntoli Closes the Transfer Window Early

Juventus will sign Tiago Djaló in the coming days but won’t make any more January acquisitions, chief football officer Cristiano Giuntoli announced before the Sassuolo game. The director assessed their campaign so far to DAZN (via TuttoSport).

“We had a great first half of the season. Collecting 46 points in 19 matches was unthinkable at the beginning. It’s due to compliment the coach, the staff, and the guys who did an extraordinary job. We must forge ahead. The going will get increasingly tougher, but we’ll try.”

Giuntoli confirmed Djaló’s upcoming Juventus move.

“We’re down to the details. We hope to seal the deal in the next few days. I’ll talk about him when he’ll be one of our players.”

Despite the continuous links, Juventus won’t sign a new midfielder after all, Giuntoli claimed.

“We’ll stay as is at the moment. We have decided to close the transfer market and trust these lads who had an extraordinary path.”

The Bianconeri have been linked to a plethora of players following Nicolò Fagioli and Paul Pogba’s suspensions, most recently Jordan Henderson and Lazar Samardzic.
