Juventus’ pursuit of Emre Cam is practically a daily subject in the Italian newspapers, always with some update or excuse why the player hasn’t signed for the Old Lady yet.
Tuttosport come with a big reason why the agreement hasn’t been made official yet, and that is the player’s commitment with Liverpool.
As the Reds have one foot on the Champions League quarter-finals and currently fight for a place on the Premier League’s top three, Can would not like to annoy Liverpool by having a move to Juventus confirmed publicly.
Tuttosport continues to be pretty confident that the German international is joining the Old Lady this summer, as they don’t even mention any other competition for the player.
As his contract with Liverpool expires at the end of the season, he’ll be joining Juventus for free, as they see it.
Instead of saying ‘reach an agreement’, they claim that Can doesn’t want to get to ‘an official announcement’. That is, the newspaper trusts that a confirmation is all Juve need to finally land the player.
They believe that will come only at the end of the season, or much closer towards then. Jurgen Klopp’s season objectives need to be met first, or not if things go wrong, and then Can will feel more confident in revealing what the Italian media believe is an open secret.
