Juve fire sale in the Premier League

Juventus are trying to sell their unwanted players in the Premier League, including Aaron Ramsey, Douglas Costa, Alex Sandro, Federico Bernardeschi and Mattia Perin.

The Bianconeri are ready to cull their squad under new coach Andrea Pirlo, with Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain urged to follow Blaise Matuidi’s lead by terminating their contracts early by mutual consent.

The plan for the others, though, is to sell in order to raise funds for other transfers, and the Premier League has for a few years now been spending much more on the market than other divisions.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve are trying to palm off many players to English clubs, starting with Welsh midfielder Ramsey.

They hope to get €25m for him, although the €7m per year salary is proving something of an obstacle, with interest from Manchester United, West Ham United and Crystal Palace.

As for Alex Sandro, he is targeted by Manchester City, while Manchester United are said to be in talks for Bernardeschi and Douglas Costa.

Wolves are also in the running for Bernardeschi, with Fulham offered goalkeeper Perin for €12m.
