Juve agree price for Candreva

Posted on 20/01/2010


Juventus have agreed a price with Udinese for 22-year-old midfielder Antonio Candreva, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Negotiations were taking place throughout yesterday and a deal was apparently struck whereby Candreva will join Juventus on loan until the end of the season for €500,000.

The Bianconeri will then have the option to buy Candreva in part-ownership for €7m in June.

Livorno, the Tuscan club who currently have Candreva on loan, will receive €300,000 in compensation.

If there are no more hiccups, the Italy international will sign for Juventus later today and start training with the squad in time for this weekend’s clash with Roma.

Federico Pastorello, the player’s agent, is believed to have negotiated terms, allowing Candreva to double his salary.

The Italy international will play at the heart of Juventus’s three-man midfield with Diego ahead of him as a trequartista and Amauri and Alessandro Del Piero up front in a 4-3-1-2.
