Martin Caceres “has Juventus in his destiny and will be a warrior for Antonio Conte,” said the Sevilla talent’s agent.
The right-back was already playing in Turin on loan from Barcelona in 2009-10, but the club did not take up its option.
“Juve’s interest made me very happy, as it’s rare for the Juventus train to come along twice in under three years,” said agent and former Bianconeri striker Daniel Fonseca.
“I am not surprised, though. Martin has Juventus in his destiny. He is a warrior, the kind that the Bianconeri fans and Conte really appreciate. Even if he’s content in Sevilla, he’d be very happy to come back to Turin.”
Caceres would cost around €2m to take on loan for six months and a further €6m to buy him outright at the end of the season.
“When Juve didn’t take up their option in 2010, there was certainly some bitterness, but we are not seeking revenge. Changing your valuation is a sign of intelligence.
“He can play in any of the defensive roles, whether central or full-back, on the right or left. In Uruguay and various clubs he was used in five different positions. He adapts to situations, but what remains intact is his inexorable hunger for success.”
