Last weak the big news was the report that Barcelona and manager Xavi Hernandez, were in contact with Juventus forward Alvaro Morata and would like to sign the player who’s on loan from Atletico Madrid and is set to go back to the Spanish club at the end of the season. Reports always were suggesting that Juventus were never interested in permanently signing the player and he was seen as a stop gap until the team could purchase a striker for the future. With money and timing being an issue, finding the perfect player was always going to require patients, and reports yesterday from Di Marzio indicated that Juventus have chosen to go after Gianluca Scamacca in the summer, which left some supporters like myself disappointed because we wanted someone different. And that someone is Dušan Vlahović.
Well, if you’re like me, then I have some good news, as Calcio Mercato via ilbianconeri.com is reporting that “Juve, in fact does not want to make any decisions in this January market that could then also constrain future signings. The goal is to override the February Board of Directors, to then see at what point Allegri’s work is and (once at least qualification for the Champions League has been secured) and from there they understand how to invest the treasure for the market coming from the increase of capital with much clearer ideas about which squad will be supported or revolutionized. As regards to the center forward, Juve would like to reach the end of the season with a bridge solution (just as Morata) before understanding if they can really try everything on the Dusan Vlahovic front “.
In other words, summer is still a long time away, there are still many things that can happen and Dušan Vlahović is and will always be an option, until he isn’t.
