Juventus and Udinese are still talking about a potential move for Roberto Pereyra. And, because of it, we're still talking about Juventus and Udinese still talking about a potential move for Roberto Pereyra. That's a whole lot of talking about Juve and Udinese talking about a potential move for Roberto Pereyra.
Did you get all of that? Good, I hope so.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, there's some kind of development in a situation. Some, I guess.
Juventus and Udinese have been the discussing the potential transfer of Pereyra in the past few weeks, and in recent days there have been further contacts between the clubs. Many players have gone from Udinese to Juventus in recent years, and Juventus is serious about closing the deal for the Argentine midfielder. More developments are expected in the coming days.
Ah, that Juventus-Udinese pipeline. Keep it strong, guys, keep it strong.
On a day where the only reasonable news coming out of Italy was the Supercoppa being moved to a couple days before Christmas and a decent number of Italian players not sitting in first class on their direct flight to Brazil (#BlamePrandelli), this will have to do, I guess.
With Juventus' interest in the Argentinian winger being no secret, it seems as though if they were to make a transfer in the relatively near future, Pereyra would be it. At least that's the hunch I have. But what is that worth anyway? Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici are the ones who have to negotiate the deal, not yours truly.
And when it comes to negotiating, it's interesting to hear what's being thrown out there. Juve might be interested in throwing in a player to try and lower the transfer fee. Udinese are known admirers of a certain striker by the name of Simone Zaza, who is co-owned by Juventus. If that's the case, Udinese wouldn't be the worst place in Italy for Zaza to continue his development at (although now with Andrea Stramaccioni being named manager, who knows how exactly that roster and it's accompanying tactics will look in a couple months).
Still, regardless of who might be involved, Juventus and Udinese are still talking about a move for Pereyra. And so are we.
