Juve keep Kulusevski at Parma

Dejan Kulusevski has passed his Juventus medical, as Atalanta earn €35m plus bonuses, but he’ll reportedly stay on loan at Parma.

The 19-year-old has had a sensational Serie A season so far, scoring four goals and providing seven assists in 17 games during his Parma loan spell.

Inter, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool had also been interested, but Juve beat everyone to the Sweden international by striking a deal over the Christmas break.

Kulusevski had his medical at the J-Medical Centre this morning and will sign the contract to June 2024.

The transfer fee is €35m plus up to €10m in various add-ons, believed to be €5m relatively easy to achieve and another €5m in far tougher clauses.

It is an extraordinary profit for Atalanta, who snapped him up for their youth academy from IF Bromma in 2016 for just €165,000.

The plan is for Kulusevski to see out the rest of his season-long loan deal with Parma, as La Gazzetta dello Sport claim the Ducali rejected the opportunity to take Marko Pjaca on loan from Juventus as a replacement.

It will also allow the Swede to gain experience, seeing a she has only 20 Serie A games under his belt.
