Jovetic would probably be the cheapest option :P but I'd like to see Cavani at Juve
go for all 3 :P

Sakho and Barzagli exchange clubs

Andrea Barzagli, has left Juventus for the Qatar owned Paris Saint Germain. The defender, was deemed surplus by the new manager, Pavel Nedved. The defender was highly rated by many staff and indeed the fans, but the manager seems to be raising funds to sign a striker, something that the Turin based club needed last season. Names go across as Cavani, Lewandowski and Damaio. However, the defender seemed to be unhappy at his departure of Juventus, a team that opened the doors to him.

He said," It's a sad day for me and my family. I'll have to leave for Paris Saint Germain, something that will challenge me." When he was questioned of potential titles he said," I've won titles in Germany and now in Italy. It's been a hell of a ride with Juve and sadly, it has finished." However, the defender relished the challenge brought by PSG. He said," What PSG have planned for the next years is immense. I've come to help and tutor players here, according to Ancelotti." He finished by saying," Alex and Thiago, beware, I will do my best to displace both of you!" The transfer seems inflated by a lot of PSG fans, as it comes to 10 million pounds for a player that will be 32 next year. But, they are happy to bring such a player of wealth experience, who has won two league titles in two different countries.

On the other hand, Mamadou Sakho signed a five year deal with Juve, meaning that he would stay until his 27th birthday. Sarpong told Corriero dello Sport,"It's great to play in such a team. Chiellini, Bonucci and Caceres are all great players. I look forward to learning from them." The defender sighed and said," I should've left when the club was bought. Look at the quantity of games that I have played there since. It decreased tons. PSG has been a home for me since I had 9 years. I barely played there over the past two years. But, when such a legend like Nedved phoned me about my availability, I didn't hestitate."

Nedved's reaction was quite similar to Sakho's. He told the press," Sakho is a fantastic player and we lacked a player who can bring a tighter defense. He was my first choice and I personally think that he’s better than Alex. Sakho was PSG's captain because they saw potential in him. But, they gave up on him, and I believe that no one should give up on their players.” The manager also confirmed the transfer fee, which was close to 10 million pounds according to the media but he shrugged and said," It was 9 million pounds. 1 million is a lot of money and that is what many people earn in their lifetime."

Great job Jeremy, Sakho is class! :D
Nice to see this back!! Sakho is a great signing!
Freshening up! :) I think Barzagli will be sorely missed though
@Madridista: Thanks mate! I bought him with Norwich and he was absolute class!

@K1rups: Thanks! I'm officially back!

@Okikos: Well, 10 million is an offer that I couldn't refuse. Plus I get an extra million from Barzagli's transfer.

Iaquinta released as Bertolacci joins Juventus

Vincenzo Iaquinta is officially a former Juventus player, as both the Nedved and the board of directors decided to pay 4 million pounds to release him. However, Iaquinta seemed unhappy on his final press conference as a Juve player.

He said," This is one of the worst ways to leave a club. I've seen people forced out of clubs, but were transferred, but this is just unacceptable. I don't really care about the 4 millions that they paid me, this is a disgrace." He stormed off the conference fuming at his release. At 33 years of age, nobody looks to take Iaquinta for a second shot at the Serie A.

However, Juventus have brought Andrea Bertolacci to compete with Marchisio, according to several Italian reports. The Turin based club had to pay 2.5 million to Genoa and 3.1 million to Roma to obtain the player and it looks like that he will stay at the club for a long time. He successfully passed his medical and went straight into the clubs training grounds to train under new manager, Pavel Nedved. Talking to the press, Nedved commented on 'future transfers'.

He said," We have a marquee signing that will join the team in a week or two. It's what the fans have wanted ever since my colleague, Del Piero left." Nedved smiled and said," Take a wild guess. I'll give you three names. Lewandowski, Cavani and Jovetic." The press went mad after this and reports will surge quickly after what Nedved confirmed.

Nice signing! I'm glad someone understands the co-ownership rule :P
Good transfer, expensive release :P I'll put my money on Jovetic. He's the youngest of the trio and has a lot of potential, and like Cavani he already has experience in Serie A. Maybe Lewa and Cavani are more suited to Conte's style of play, but Jovetic is a technically gifted forward- much more like Del Piero ( My favourite italian player ever :) ) so I think Nedved will like him.
Nice signings, bit much to release Iaquinta dont you think?

Juventus make The Biggest Transfer Move

Juventus have confirmed the signing, of the fantastic Edinson Cavani. Already played three years in Italy's top league, Nedved will surely be happy with his signing.

The signing is perhaps the most important of all, ever since 2004.

He might even be proven as the best striker in the world and at the end of the season, the staff at Juventus will evaluate a kind of signing dubbed by the fans to describe a player costing the club millions.

Cavani joins Nedved again at Juventus F.C., departing from rivals Napoli for a whooping 35 million pounds.

The former Danubio star joined Palermo at the age of 20 and stayed there for three years, scoring an amount of before he made his move to Napoli and scored 29 goals in 109 appearances. Catching Napoli's eyes, he joined on a loan basis and impressed the staff there, scoring a whopping 26 goals in 35 matches. In a total of 70 matches for the Uruguayan at the Naples club, he has scored 49 goals, an astonishing ratio for such a young striker.

The 25-year-old Uruguayan striker was brought to Napoli by Walter Mazzari, initially on loan from Palermo, but was later purchased for a fee rumored to be about 15 million euros. With this type of signing, many people tip Juventus to have their best season yet, only if Cavani starts scoring like he did during his two year stint at Napoli.

Under Mazzari, Cavani blossomed, and has now proven himself as one of Uruguay's best in recent history, almost beating Forlan's recent goalscoring record. He has been linked to the biggest European clubs, such as, Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea and now, his new club Juve. With Juventus quickly acting after a month into the transfer window, Juventus will be a team to fear worldwide.

He will now join Nedved's project at Juventus.

Look out world. There is another super force around. Juve are gonna rip up every competition
What great writing and what a great signing! Your squad will be very strong
Can't see Napoli fans being very happy! Great signing - never actually used Cavani on FM13 :D
