Juventus Making Late Attempts to Sign Mauro Icardi and Miralem Pjanic

Juventus will soon announce the return of Moise Kean, who took the medicals yesterday. He might not be their only offensive purchase to make up for the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Bianconeri have reached out to PSG again to ask for Mauro Icardi, but the French club rebuffed them, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

The Old Lady tried to get the striker on an initial loan. It remains to be seen whether the situation could change in the final two days. The future of the Argentinian forward is likely tied to the permanence of Kylian Mbappé. If PSG rejected the bids coming from Real Madrid, Icardi could leave. Their director Leonardo inquired about Erling Haaland as a fallback plan if they sold their start, Bild reports. Such scenario would favor Juventus too. Although there is little time to complete all these massive moves.

The Bianconeri are considering bolstering the midfield even if they did not sell any of their players. Massimiliano Allegri stated that Weston McKennie should stay, and Aaron Ramsey has drawn little interest. Their top targets for the role remain Miralem Pjanic and Axel Witsel. The Bosnian playmaker has always prioritized the return over other destinations. The clubs would have to iron out the formula, but Barcelona could pay half of his €8M salary, Alfredo Pedullà informs. Borussia Dortmund want to find a substitute before okaying the sale of the Belgian international. However, the deal is already in place and could be finalized very late, Di Marzio relays.
