  1. Verona president discusses Juventus hijack of Cabal’s move to Inter Milan Juventus has just completed the signing of Juan Cabal, despite it initially seeming that he was heading to Inter Milan. ............ Juventus managed to hijack the move from their bitter rivals, although Verona’s president Maurizio Setti suggests that they didn’t have a formal agreement with Inter before Juventus stepped in to secure the signing. “No, there has never been a real advantage but internal and shared choices. Everyone is happy, it should always be like this, it is not always like this but today it was good”. ............

  2. Cabal: ‘I was always a Juventus fan as a kid’ Juan Cabal had a photograph on social media of himself as a child in a counterfeit Juventus jersey, but now gets to wear it for real after an €11m transfer. ‘I was always a Juve fan.’ This perhaps explains why the Colombia international was so eager to switch over and join the Bianconeri yesterday, despite having already agreed personal terms and a move to Inter. When Cristiano Giuntoli approached, the 23-year-old had no doubts and passed his medical this morning, completing the transfer from Hellas Verona for €11m plus up to €3.8m in bonuses. “I am very happy, as this is one of the biggest clubs in the world and I am so overjoyed to wear this jersey,” Cabal told the official club website. Following the swoop, an image went viral from Cabal’s social media accounts showing him as a kid in a knock-off Juve shirt. “As a kid, I wore this jersey that was not an original one, and now I get to wear the legendary Juventus shirt and I am so happy. I was always a Juve fan.” ............ “I am someone who can play both positions, I’m very quick and well-behaved, both on and off the field. My idols are Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos.” ............ “Everyone in Colombia is celebrating, because this is an important step for me, my family and all the kids who also have a dream and can see me making it happen.” Read more -> https://football-italia.net/cabal-i-was-always-a-juventus-fan-as-a-kid/
  3. Official: Juan Cabal completes Juventus transfer Juventus have officially signed Juan Cabal from Hellas Verona for €11m plus up to another €3.8m in bonuses, snatching him from under the noses of Inter. The left-back, who can also play as a central defender, had been all set for a move to San Siro after the clubs agreed a €10m plus bonuses move and personal terms too. However, yesterday Juve swooped in and suddenly managed to secure a deal instead. ............ Juventus have paid Verona €11m – payable over three financial years – with the addition of ancillary costs up to €1.8m. There are also performance-related bonuses of up to €2m. Cabal has signed a contract with the Bianconeri to June 2029. ............ Read more -> https://football-italia.net/official-juan-cabal-complete-juventus-transfer/
  4. Is Cabal a new Calafiori for Thiago Motta at Juventus? Juventus are on the verge of signing Juan Cabal from Hellas Verona and the two roles the Colombian can cover suggest he may be a new Riccardo Calafiori for Thiago Motta in Turin. Verona defender Cabal arrived in Turin this morning to undergo medical tests with Juventus ahead of a permanent €12m transfer, including add-ons. ............ His versatility reminds of Bologna star Calafiori who joined the Rossoblu as a left-back last summer, but developed into a centre-back under Motta at the Stadio Dall’Ara in 2023-24. Motta will be unveiled as the new Juventus coach at a press conference later today when he will likely discuss his ideas on Cabal. ............ There are, however, clear differences between the two defenders, as their price tags suggest. As mentioned, Cabal will move to Turin on a €10m deal plus €2m add-ons, while Calafiori is expected to join Arsenal for over €50m. ............ Cabal is a year older than Calafiori, but the Italian international was clearly unaffordable for the Bianconeri after impressive performances for Bologna and during the Euros. ............

  5. Cabal arrives to complete Juventus transfer Hellas Verona defender Juan Cabal has arrived in Turin to undergo medical examinations with Juventus and complete a permanent transfer at the Allianz Stadium. Colombian defender Cabal is ready to become Juventus’ fourth summer signing. The Bianconeri have secured his signature by offering Verona €10m plus €2m add-ons and pushing their rivals Inter out of the race. ............

  6. Juventus swoop in, agree to deal for Inter transfer target Juan Cabal Surprise transfer move incoming! Because of financial issues both clubs have had over the last couple of years, it hasn’t been often that Juventus and Inter Milan have rivaled one another for a player on the transfer market. When they have rivaled one another for a player, that has usually meant Juve coming in and snatching an Inter target right from under their noise, the most notable being Bremer two summers ago in the wake of Matthijs de Ligt heading to Bayern Munich. Well, my friends, I have something to say: It’s time to add another one to the list. According to multiple reports, Juventus and Hellas Verona have agreed to a deal for fullback Juan Cabal. What makes it all the more of a surprising move is that Juve’s arch rival, Inter, looked all set themselves to sign Cabal until about 12 hours ago before Cristiano Giuntoli jumped in and snatched the 23-year-old Colombian away from Beppe Marotta’s hands. Juve will reportedly pay around €12 million to Hellas Verona for Cabal, who arrived in Italy from Colombia in 2022 after playing for Atlético Nacional. Cabal will be paid around €1.2 million per season. Considering that this will be a deal involving two Serie A clubs, Juventus are still able to make it happen even though Cabal would normally take up a non-EU spot on the roster. ............ Cabal, on paper, very much fits the mold of what you would expect a Thiago Motta-managed fullback would like to do. ............ Sound defensively and somebody who is able to contribute on the offensive end of things? Well, well, well .. that sounds like something that Motta can certainly use on his team. It will reportedly cost Juventus a couple million euros more than what Inter was set to pay. ............ Cabal will be just the second-ever Colombian player to appear for Juventus’ senior squad after Cuadrado.

  7. “A very demanding manager” – Cambiaso reveals his playing position under Motta Juventus fullback Andrea Cambiaso heaps praise on the club’s new coach Thiago Motta. ............. The 24-year-old initially joined the Bianconeri in the summer of 2022, but was immediately sent on loan to Bologna. This opportunity allowed Cambiaso to develop his game under the guidance of the Italo-Brazilian tactician. So now that the 41-year-old has been appointed, Cambiaso is the only member of the current Juventus squad who had been previously coached by the former Inter and PSG midfielder. ............. “He is a coach who has a great mentality, and a great desire to work,” said Cambiaso. “He is very demanding and therefore does very well. We are a relatively young team, so I think he can help us a lot.” ............. Read more -> https://www.juvefc.com/a-very-demanding-manager-cambiaso-reveals-his-playing-position-under-motta/
  8. Juventus open talks with Porto for young Portugal international Juventus have reportedly launched concrete attempts to sign young Porto winger Francisco Conceicao. The 21-year-old is a youth product of Sporting Lisbon but when his father Sergio became the head coach of Porto, the youngster followed suit in 2018. ............. The Bianconeri have already opened contacts with Porto for Conceicao’s services. The Serie A giants are reportedly offering an initial loan proposal with an obligation to buy. The source describes the Portugal international as a priority transfer target for Juventus Football Director Cristiano Giuntoli. Conceicao is a left-footed player who usually plays as an inverted winger, cutting from the right flank. .............

  9. Juventus name their price for Milik amidst Everton & Newcastle interest Juventus have named their price for Arkadiusz Milik who has three suitors in the Premier League, including Everton and Newcastle United. Similar to his compatriot Wojciech Szczesny, the striker is on his way out of the club after being omitted from Thiago Motta’s plans. ........... The Bianconeri are requesting a transfer fee of 6 or 7 million euros to part ways with the Tychy native. As the source notes, this is almost the same figure that the club splashed to sign Milik on a permanent basis from Olympique Marseille last summer. ............

  10. Pedulla: Juventus & Nice start direct negotiations for Todibo – Transfer formula revealed Juventus have finally launched direct talks with Nice over the transfer of French defender Jean-Clair Todibo. The Bianconeri have identified the 24-year-old as their main target to partner Gleison Bremer at the back after missing out on Riccardo Calafiori who will instead join Arsenal ............. According to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, the two clubs have finally begun their direct negotiations. ............. The Ligue 1 side had set their original asking price at 40 million euros, while Juventus have been trying to negotiate a package worth 35 million or less. Pedulla also adds that the two sides could agree over a loan formula with an obligation to buy at the end of the season. .............

  11. Video – Juventus players training hard under Motta on second day of Germany camp The official Juventus YouTube channel has uploaded a video showing the highlights from the second day of training of the pre-season camp at the Adidas headquarters in Germany. ............. The Bianconeri players appeared to be in a good mood as they started the day with a team chat, but they swiftly turned up the heat when the serious part began. .............

  12. Who will be Vlahovic’s understudy at Juventus? Two main options surface Juventus are searching the market for a striker who can act as a backup for Dusan Vlahovic, and have apparently earmarked two Serie A profiles. The Italian giants are currently revamping their attacking department, with Matias Soulé, Federico Chiesa and Arkadiusz Milik all tipped to follow Moise Kean to the exit door. ............. The Bianconeri have identified two players for this delicate role. The first is Mateo Retegui who has been plying his trade in Genoa since making the move from Boca Juniors last summer. ............. The alternative option is Napoli’s Giacomo Raspadori, a versatile attacker who can play almost anywhere in the final third. .............

  13. Juventus planning five sales to finance Koopmeiners move – The list revealed Juventus are looking to sell five of their players in order to raise funds for their transfer targets, and chief among them is Teun Koopmeiners. ............. The management has listed five players who must be sold to finance the Koopmeiners operation. The first name on the list is Matias Soulé who can generate the biggest transfer fee. Juventus are refusing to sell the Argentine for anything less than 35 million euros despite Roma’s vigorous attempts. Then we have Dean Huijsen who could yield a figure worth 25 million euros. ............. The third name on the list is Wojciech Szczesny who has become surplus to requirements following Michele Di Gregorio’s arrival. ............. Mattia De Sciglio and Daniele Rugani are now considered among the deadwood and will have to find new accommodations. Bologna are reportedly interested in the centre-back, while the versatile fullback has been recently linked with Monza.

  14. Soulé reaffirms desire to join Roma, rejecting higher Leicester City offer Matias Soulé informed Leicester City and Juventus via his agent that he only wants to join Roma, even if the Premier League side is offering more. ............. They note that Soulé and his representative made clear once again today that it does not matter if Leicester City or any other club is going to offer more for the transfer fee or his wages. Juventus respect that, but need Roma to bump up their proposal from €28m to at least €30m. He is absolutely convinced that Roma is the right step for his career after speaking directly to coach Daniele De Rossi, fellow Argentines Paulo Dybala and Leandro Paredes. It is not about finances or even ambition, so much as the sporting project and also the lifestyle he would enjoy in Rome. .............

  15. Koopmeiners returns to action for Atalanta as he waits for Juventus Teun Koopmeiners has recovered from the injury that forced him to miss Euro 2024 and played his first game for Atalanta yesterday. The Dutchman has agreed to move to Juventus and continue his career in Turin, but the Bianconeri must agree on a transfer fee with Atalanta before he can leave. ............. He started Atalanta’s game against their U19 side. It was an in-house friendly game that provided an opportunity to assess the players’ fitness levels, and Koopmeiners returned to action. He started and played the first 45 minutes without any problems, which should reassure Juve that he has no fitness issues to worry about. .............
