Estigarribia from Juve to Samp?

Sampdoria are on the verge of completing their transfer for ex-Juventus benchwarmer Marcelo Estigarribia.

The Paraguayan winger was signed by the Turin giants on loan last summer, but failed to make an impact in Turin with only 14 appearances, most of them as a substitute.

Rather than return to Deportivo Maldonado, the 24-year-old would prefer to spend another year in Serie A.

According to the latest reports, Sampdoria will pay €700,000 to have Estigarribia on loan for a season with the option to buy for €5m.
