Serie A in World Cup Final

There are seven Serie A players participating in the World Cup Final between Croatia and France on Sunday.

This evening, Croatia beat England 2-1 in extra time to enter their first ever World Cup Final, as it was only their second semi-final after 1998.

Serie A figures were decisive, as Inter winger Ivan Perisic scored the equaliser and then nodded on a loose ball for Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic to finish it off.

Fresh-faced Fiorentina

With young talent Alban Lafont, Marco Pjaca and Mario Pasalic on the way, Giancarlo Rinaldi feels Fiorentina fans can get excited at last.

This is a summer of uncertainty, anticipation and excitement in Florence. The Viola, clearly, have a more than passing interest in Milan’s European fate. But while that decision is dragging on longer than the declaration of a new Pope, a string of intriguing young players are being linked with a move to Tuscany.

Chiesa raised in Pjaca talks

Fiorentina continue negotiations for winger Marko Pjaca, but Juventus are trying to get an option on Federico Chiesa as part of the deal.

It is no secret that Pjaca is a firm target for the Viola and widely reported that he is eager to make the transfer.

He just returned from six months on loan at Schalke 04 and wants more regular playing time.

Juve intend to make the most of the situation and can pocket €25m plus a buy-back option to bring the Croatia international to Turin in future.

Pjaca could join Fiorentina

Juventus winger Marko Pjaca could reportedly join Fiorentina on loan, with a €20m obligation to buy.

The Croatian winger spent the second half of last season on loan at Schalke 04, as he battles back from a knee injury.

It appears though that there’s no space for him in Turin, and it’s widely expected he’ll move on this summer.

Now La Repubblica is reporting that the Viola are close to a deal which would see them take Pjaca on loan for a year, after which they’d be obliged to buy him for €20m.

Agent drops Pjaca-Fiorentina hint

Marko Pjaca’s agent has hinted that Fiorentina could sign the Juventus winger after the World Cup. “He must play and find the space he needs.”

Pjaca is reportedly holding out for Fiorentina after refusing to be included in a proposed swap with Valencia’s Joao Cancelo, and Marko Naletic appeared to give credence to the speculation surrounding the ‘best Croatian individual’.

Pjaca set for Fiorentina trident?

Juventus’ Marko Pjaca could form an attacking trident with Giovanni Simeone and Federico Chiesa if he gets his reported wish to join Fiorentina.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Pjaca has rejected the chance to join Valencia as part of the deal that takes Joao Cancelo to Juve.

This would be because the winger ‘wants to relaunch his career’ at Fiorentina, whose Coach Stefano Pioli ‘appreciates him’ in return and ‘sees him well’ in a front three with Simeone and Chiesa.

World Cup: Mandzukic inspires Croatia

Mario Mandzukic was decisive as Croatia beat Nigeria 2-0, forcing an own goal and earning a penalty converted by Luka Modric.

There were three Serie A players in the Croatian starting XI, including Mandzukic in his more traditional centre-forward role, one he rarely takes at Juventus.

Inter winger Ivan Perisic fired just off target, as did Andrej Kramaric, but the Croatian opener was rather scrappy. A corner was flicked on by Kramaric, Mandzukic’s diving header then ricocheted in off the shin of Oghenekaro Etebo.

Juventus reject Pjaca deal

Juventus have made it clear to Valencia that they won’t include Marko Pjaca in any deal for Joao Cancelo, according to reports.

The Bianconeri are pushing to sign the full-back, who spent this season on loan at Inter.

Los Che are demanding €40m to sell the Portuguese, but Tuttosport states that they were willing to include Pjaca in the transfer to lower the cost.

The Spanish side are keen on the Croatian winger, but they have to raise €40m by June 30 to comply with Financial Fair Play.

Juventus offer Pjaca for Cancelo

Juventus are willing to offer Marko Pjaca as part of any deal for Valencia’s Joao Cancelo, according to reports.

The Bianconeri are looking for a full-back, and have been heavily linked with the Portuguese, who spent this season on loan at Inter.

The Beneamata couldn’t take up their €35m option to buy due to Financial Fair Play, opening the door for the Old Lady.

Today’s Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Juve value Pjaca around €20m, so would be willing to pay up to €35m to get Cancelo by including the Croatian winger.
