Juventus Lodge Bid to Beat Inter at the Last Corner

Tiago Djaló has an agreement in place to join Inter in a Bosman move at the end of the season, but Juventus are trying to top their Derby d’Italia rivals by signing him in January, paying a small fee to Lille. If the Bianconeri managed, they’d then evaluate whether to keep him in their squad or loan him out, Sky informs.

The Old Lady has successfully re-opened a matter that the Nerazzurri had seemingly already sealed. The outcome of the duel hinges on how much pull Les Dogues have with their own player, Alfredo Pedullà informs. They’d prefer getting something out of his departure.

On top of his talent and contractual situation, Juventus and Inter have started eyeing Djaló especially for his versatility, as he can play in any defensive position. He joined Lille from Milan as part of the Rafael Leao deal back in 2019. He has eight caps with Portugal U-21 and has been called up once by the senior team.

The 23-year-old, who has 77 Ligue 1 appearances under his belt, tore his ACL back in March and has yet to return on the pitch.

Our Take on Juventus, Inter, and Djaló

The Bianconeri are deep enough this season, but they’ll need new pieces next year considering their probable Champions League return and Alex Sandro most likely departing. He might actually be more useful to them following Yann Aurel Bisseck’s emergence and the addition of Tajon Buchanan.
