Juve target Miranda to Schalke?

Juventus look like missing out on Barcelona left-back Juan Miranda, as it’s reported he’ll join Schalke 04 on a two-year loan deal.

The Bianconeri had several meetings with Barca directors to discuss the future of the 19-year-old talent, who joined the Catalan youth academy aged 14.

It was reported Juve offered €8m, whereas Barcelona wanted at least €12m.

He was also linked with Olympique Marseille, who instead seem to have moved in to intercept Diego Laxalt’s transfer to Atalanta.

Now, according to Diario AS in Spain, Miranda is on his way to Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 on a two-season loan.

It will enable him to gain first team experience, but also return to Barcelona for free.
