There have been unexpected delays in Juventus completing the signature of Marcelo Alejandro Estigarribia.
The Paraguayan international flew in for his medical after the club agreed terms with Newell's Old Boys.
However, Sportmediaset points out the winger has still not put pen to paper on the contract.
The problem appears to regard red tape as, like many South American players, he is owned by both the club and an investment group.
Considering there is a break for international duty coming up, there are fears Antonio Conte won't be able to work with Estigarribia for at least another 10 days.
