JUVE SIGN QUARESMA
Juventus has landed their third signing of the season after agreeing terms with former Inter Milan winger Ricardo Quaresma.
The Portuguese international had been playing for Al Ahli but joins Juve on a free transfer after his deal with the Emirati club expired this summer.
The signing of Quaresma could signal a change in tactics for Juventus after playing the entire season without wingers in their formation.
Quaresma, who signs a three year deal on £37,000 a week, is likely to battle it out on the left flank with Brazilian prospect Vitinho, who also joins Juve for free.
Known for his flamboyance and ‘Trivela’ cross, Quaresma began his career at Sporting Lisbon before two great seasons saw both him and Cristiano Ronaldo earn moves in 2003.
Quaresma failed to impress at Barcelona under Frank Rijkaard and soon saw himself return back to Portugal to represent Sporting’s rivals, FC Porto.
Following three league titles in four seasons with Porto, Quaresma made the switch to Inter Milan for £14 million, where he would be considered among the worst signings of the season and be loaned to Chelsea in 2009.
In 2010, Quaresma joined Beskitas for £6.5 million, where he would collect an array of admirers due to his flair on the ball before moving to Al Ahli in 2013 on a free transfer.
