“I think Stephan Lichtsteiner will be a Juventus player by Tuesday,” declared the Lazio defender's representative.
It is well known the clubs are in negotiations, although Lazio President Claudio Lotito had put on the brakes by insisting the price-tag was €12m.
However, it seems the matter is progressing far quicker than that, at least from the point of view of the Switzerland international.
“I think Lichtsteiner will be a Juventus player by Tuesday,” agent Federico Pastorello told Tuttosport this evening.
While the Biancocelesti did hold out for €12m, it's widely believed that they will sell the full-back for €10m.
Right now the Juventus offer is firm at €9m, so the clubs should find a solution in the next few days.
