Juventus Need Some Help to Put Their Hands on De Paul

Juventus have Rodrigo De Paul atop their wish list to shore up the midfield after their suspensions, but they need a positive chain of events to be successful. First and foremost, Atletico Madrid have to sign a quality option in the same role to greenlight his departure, TuttoSport relays.

The Colchoneros have shown interest in a reunion with Thomas Partey from Arsenal. However, he just went down with a severe thigh injury. The Spanish giants have also been linked to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Fabian Ruiz, who are on the Bianconeri’s radar too.

De Paul is open to the Juventus move but isn’t necessarily pushing for it, as he’d be happy to continue with his current club, the outlet adds. The Old Lady doesn’t have a ton to spend. They wish to concoct a season-long spell with a €30M option to buy, with the transfer automatically becoming permanent should they qualify for the Champions League.

The Argentine has provided two assists in nine appearances across all competitions so far. He has scored 7 times in 95 matches since moving to Spain.

Our Take on Juventus and De Paul

He’d be just what the doctor ordered from the technical and tactical standpoints, but the financial aspects of the deal and the player and his team’s postures render it a bit unlikely. It wouldn’t be surprising if he came out to rubbish the rumors shortly.
