'Pazienza to Juve is done'

The agent of Michele Pazienza has confirmed that the player will leave Napoli for Juventus in the next seven days.

"The deal is done," Vincenzo D'Ippolito told Radio Mana Mana on Friday. "He'll have his medical at the end of this week or at the start of next week."

Pazienza is thus on the verge of becoming Juventus' third signing ahead of the 2011-12 campaign.

The Old Lady have already netted Andrea Pirlo from Milan and Sampdoria's Reto Ziegler on free transfers.

Now Juve will complete their hat-trick of Bosmans with Pazienza who is out of contract at the end of this month.

Pazienza, born in 1982, is a combative midfielder who has been unable to reach agreement over a contract extension at the Stadio San Paolo.

Pazienza started his career at Foggia, before moves to Udinese and Fiorentina. He joined Napoli in January 2008.
