Schalke close on Pjaca

Juventus are in negotiations to loan Marko Pjaca to Schalke 04, but refuse to include an option to buy at the end of the season.

The Croatia international has not played for the senior squad since sustaining a serious knee injury in May, but impressed with the Primavera youth team, contributing two goals and three assists in four games.

Juve confirmed they are ready to loan him out in order to regain match fitness with regular playing time.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Goal, the Bianconeri are currently in negotiations with Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04.

They are the hot favourites to snap up Pjaca, but are pushing to include an option to buy, something Juventus absolutely refuse to allow.

The 22-year-old already has 13 senior caps for Croatia, scoring one goal.
