Juventus, full speed ahead for Douglas Luiz: the point on the negotiations with Aston Villa


Awaiting the signature and related official status of Thiago Motta as the new coach, the Juventus has already begun to weave its own canvas on the market. With the obvious aim of strengthening and integrating the squad with profiles suited to the tactical creed of the next coach.

The main focus immediately seemed to be on the midfield, a department that was also orphaned by Paul Pogba and which needs additions on both a quantitative and qualitative level. From the latest checks of TMW confirmations emerge regarding the name of Douglas LuizBrazilian midfielder owned by Aston Villa who made 53 overall appearances last season with 10 goals and 10 assists.

Juventus and the English club are negotiating right now, with continuous contact for several days now. The stumbling block at the moment remains the divergence of assessments, with Cristiano Giuntoli who is working on a package that includes Weston McKennie And Samuel Iling Junior as partial technical counterparts for the English club. In addition to the cards of the two players, there will be a cash component to be added and this is precisely what is being discussed, with the Birmingham club asking for a plus of around 15-20 million euros. However, the negotiation is in a hot phase and could be carried out in the next few hours.
