Bastos optimistic of joining Juve

The agent of Michel Bastos is confident that Juventus can do a deal with Lyon over his client.

The Old Lady have been tracking the Brazilian for over a year, but their interest has cooled since the appointment of Coach Antonio Conte.

Reports in France are suggesting that the Italian giants are reluctant to meet Lyon's €14m asking price for the player.

However, Emmanuel De Kerkove believes that a summer switch could still be on for the left-sided player.

"Lyon and Juventus are both tough negotiators," the agent is quoted as saying. "I'm optimistic though and I think something will be decided by the end of this week."
