Sky: Perin fate this evening

Juventus goalkeeper Mattia Perin is set to find out this evening whether he will become a Benfica player.

Perin was all set to join Benfica in a €15m deal until they announced on Thursday night that he needed four months to recover from a shoulder injury.

Their decision to make that news public infuriated Juve, and Gianluca Di Marzio claims agent Alessandro Lucci has done his best to mend relations between the two clubs.

With that in mind, the Sky Sport Italia journalist is predicting not only a final decision to arrive later but also one of two outcomes.

Either the Portuguese champions negotiate a season-long loan with obligation to buy, providing certain conditions are met, or the transfer is cancelled.

Nonetheless, Di Marzio maintains the 26-year-old did not fail a medical and that there is only a difference in the forecast of his recovery time.
