Roberto Di Matteo advised Juventus to sign Schalke defender Benedikt Howedes and analysed their Champions League ambitions.
Bianconeri director Beppe Marotta confirmed yesterday that Juve were only prepared to take the Germany international on loan with option to buy, reportedly for a total of €10m, whereas Schalke want double that.
“Howedes is an extraordinary lad and a centre-back worthy of a top team,” former Schalke tactician Di Matteo told Tuttojuve.com.
