Sturaro also represented Modena and Sporting Lisbon during his career.

Sportitalia claim Udinese striker Kevin Lasagna is on the verge of a move to Hellas Verona for €10m plus bonuses.

Juve drop Pogba for De Ligt and Rabiot

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.

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.
