Juventus tracking Lucio

Having had his release from Inter confirmed on Friday, Lucio has immediately been linked with a switch to Juventus.

The Brazilian defender agreed by mutual consent to cancel his Nerazzurro contract two years early today, with rumours apparent that no agreement had been signed to prevent the player joining another Serie A side.

Subsequently, Tuttosport have linked Juventus with making a move for the veteran, which would be in a similar fashion to how they signed Andrea Pirlo after his release from Milan last summer.

Juventus are known to be in the market for a defender, but also reportedly are keen to keep to a tight budget, with most finances directed towards strengthening the Bianconeri’s strike-force instead.

The 34-year-old centre-back has otherwise been linked with a switch to Turkish side Fenerbahce.
