Juve drop Pogba for De Ligt and Rabiot

Juventus are closing on both Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt and ex-PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot, so can drop interest in Paul Pogba.

Late Friday night, Dutch paper De Telegraaf and Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio both stated De Ligt had decided to join Juve.

He’d snub Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Real Madrid for Turin in a deal worth €70m, but above all a five-year contract at €15-20m per season.

Sturaro out for six months

Genoa confirm Stefano Sturaro went under the knife today to reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The midfielder is expected to be out of action for five to six months.

It is yet another devastating blow for his career, as the 26-year-old made just five Serie A appearances this season, scoring one goal against his old club Juventus.

Sturaro has barely featured over the past three seasons, suffering from knee problems, tendonitis and a torn Achilles tendon.

Sturaro suffers ACL damage

Genoa midfielder Stefano Sturaro is expected to be out until October after damaging knee ligaments.

Sturaro was stretchered off during Genoa’s 1-1 draw with SPAL last weekend, and Genoa confirmed he would have a consultation on Friday.

ANSA, however, believes the former Juventus man will need surgery and that ‘a five-month layoff is planned.’

The 26-year-old became the Grifone’s record signing when he returned from Juve in January.

Napoli nullified by 10-man Genoa

Stefano Sturaro saw red and Genoa were down to 10 men for an hour, but Napoli could not go beyond a 1-1 draw at the San Paolo.

The Partenopei knew a defeat here would mathematically crown Juventus Champions of Italy with seven rounds to spare, as the Bianconeri already beat Milan 2-1 last night. This result means Juve can celebrate the Scudetto with a draw next week.

Sturaro: Juve my best goal

Genoa midfielder Stefano Sturaro admits that while he hopes Juventus win the Champions League, his goal against them was his most important.

Sturaro only returned to Genoa from Juve in January but marked his comeback with a goal in a 2-0 victory over his former club on Sunday.

“Looking back, the win was even more beautiful as the Curva Nord was full of joy, the Nord where I rooted for Milito, Motta, Criscito and Juric, whom I learned a lot from as a player and Coach,” he told Secolo XIX.

Just days after the Champions League 3-0 triumph over Atletico Madrid, the Bianconeri seemed drained at Marassi and fell 2-0.

“I expected a different Juventus. We did not put in a good performance, we made some mistakes and then this goal came out of nowhere,” Allegri told Sky Sport Italia and DAZN.
