Juventus Linked to Fiorentina Defender Martinez Quarta

Fiorentina and Martinez Quarta are struggling to come to terms on an extension, and Juventus are monitoring the situation. The contract of the defender runs out in 2025. The Viola want to take care of it sooner rather than later. Otherwise, they’ll have to decide whether to sell him in the next window or take the negotiation into the final year of his deal, risking a Bosman departure, TuttoSport informs (via OneFootball).

The most recent meeting between the parties didn’t have a positive outcome. The defender makes roughly €1M. He hasn’t gotten a new deal since joining back in 2020. He has amassed 111 appearances, scoring 9 goals.

If Fiorentina didn’t solve the problem and put him on the market, and Juventus came forward, the two sides would also discuss Arthur. The Viola would like to keep the midfielder, but they don’t want to pay €20M as agreed upon last summer.

In addition, the two clubs and the Brazilian’s agent would need to find common ground regarding his wages. They are hefty for the Gigliati’s standards. The Bianconeri have been contributing to them this season.

Our Take on Juventus and Martinez Quarta

The Old Lady will most likely sign another defender. He has been solid and wouldn’t be too expensive given the circumstances. Considering that he likes to venture forward and is quite good at it, he could go up a level in a three-man line. On the other hand, agents love to throw the Bianconeri’s name around whenever any renewal talks aren’t going well.
