Krasic believed in Juve

Posted on 20/08/2010


Milos Krasic insists he always believed that he would complete his move to Juventus this summer.

The Serbian winger was targeted by the Bianconeri right at the start of the transfer window, but they initially failed to agree a fee with CSKA Moscow.

While refusing to up their offer, the Italian giants went looking elsewhere and made bids for Hamburg’s Eljero Elia and Edin Dzeko of Wolfsburg.

However, a compromise was finally reached between the two clubs yesterday and the player is now in Turin ahead of his medical.

“I’m the happiest man in the world,” he told Tuttosport. “I always believed in Juve – even when things seemed difficult I knew that everything would be resolved.

“I was proved right.”

Krasic, who is understood to have rejected moves to Manchester City and Fenerbahce, will be one of numerous new faces in Turin ahead of the fresh campaign.

“I really like the idea of being one of the players who have the responsibility of starting a new cycle and winning squad at this club,” he added. “It’s great to be a part of it.”

The international is expected to sign a five-year deal with the Old Lady. It’s believed that he has cost them around €14m.
