As he has already said to the masses, Marko Pjaca's last game for Dinamo Zagreb will be on Wednesday night. He outlined it about as simple as it gets, really. He'll play Wednesday, then move to what he has called "his preferred club."

And that club, as we've come to find out, is Juventus.

With his Dinamo adventure coming to an end Wednesday, it is now widely expected that Pjaca's Thursday will be spent in Turin as he finalizes his move to Juventus. That means, well, that Juve have concluded yet another quality piece of business for a rising talent well before the season gets underway. Essentially, Juventus just gonna keep being Juventus.

After a long negotiation, Marko Pjaca is on the verge of joining Juventus. The talented striker born in '95 showcased his talents at the recent Euro, he's now expected in Italy on Thursday. Juventus is closing the deal with Dinamo Zagreb in these hours on the basis of €22/23 million, Pjaca is expected to sign a five year deal with the bianconeri. Pjaca is waiting to start the next chapter of his career in Serie A.

As we've said before, the Pjaca deal finally getting done will put an end to the on again, off again rumors that seemed to surround things for the better part of Croatia's run at Euro 2016. One day it was Milan, the next Juventus. Throw in a third or fourth team in there and everything being put out by the Italian press was seemingly contradicting itself from one day to the next. (Not that it should be any kind of surprise because it's the Italian press, after all.)

But now Pjaca joins Dani Alves, Medhi Benatia and Miralem Pjanic — say those names back-to-back five times fast if you want — as Juve's summer acquisitions that have only made this club that much better. And if they can get through the months of July and August without anything major heading out the exit door, then this squad will be pretty damn complete, if you ask me. It's been a pretty good summer so far, don't you think?
