Gazzetta dello Sport have an article on Tuesday which has a look at Juventus’ transfer situation and which players could leave the Turin club over the next week.
Rodrigo Bentancur has been linked with a move to Aston Villa in recent days, and the first slants from Italy stated the midfielder is not on the market, but his exit wouldn’t be completely ruled out.
Gazzetta, making sure not to miss any opportunity to have a pop at Aaron Ramsey’s refusal to leave the Serie A side, say ‘for him (Bentancur) and the other midfielders of the squad who were not born in Wales’, Juventus have a ‘precise idea’, and that’s to keep them unless a replacement comes in.
The same slant has been used for Arthur, yet it’s been made clear that Juve do have options to sign, or bring back from loan, should they agree an exit.
Regarding Aston Villa, the Italian newspaper say ‘Yes, there is interest’, and the trip of a Villa scout to the San Siro is backed up.
Progress of this will likely depend on just what the Birmingham club offer, with it stated around 40% of any transfer fee is due to be paid to Bentancur’s former club, Boca Juniors.
