Roma have successfully interjected the negotiation between Juventus and Frosinone, and Dean Huijsen is on the verge of transferring to the Italian capital. The Giallorossi’s director, Tiago Pinto, recently admitted that they currently had room just for youngsters on their lists.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the capital side had two big allies in the agent and the player, who preferred such a destination. His representative flew to Turin to unblock the switch to the Eternal City.
Juventus weren’t entirely opposed to sending Huijsen to Roma. However, they wanted something in return to renege on their promise to Frosinone. They’ll get €700k and possibly a youngster on loan, Alfredo Pedullà informs. The youngster is enticed by the prospect of being coached by José Mourinho.
The Dutch prodigy has made just one appearance with the Bianconeri’s first team so far. Instead, he has featured 11 times with their Next-Gen squad.
Our Take on Roma, Juventus, and Huijsen
Given their slim room to maneuver, the Giallorossi pulled off the same thing they would have done with Leonardo Bonucci, only in a completely opposite direction age-wise. They needed somebody right away, and loans are easier to concoct. Instead, they have to open up space through some departures to pursue more expensive deals, which takes time. Given the gap in the standings, the two sides aren’t competitors. No harm no foul for the Bianconeri in letting him go there. His games there will be more meaningful than elsewhere.
