Juventus Transfer News and Rumours Tracker: Week of June 9
Even though many of their players are now out in Brazil representing Italy, Juventus are still a club very much on the transfer market.
Tuttosport, the Italian daily, even mocked up a starting XI for next season—adding Real Madrid's Marcelo and Alvaro Morata as well as Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez.
All of this news is tempting, but it is speculation at its earliest stage. The rumours around Paul Pogba continue to swell, but the transfer window itself closes on September 1, leaving lots of time to negotiate deals.
Let's take a look at some early signs.
Alvaro Morata Allowed to Leave Real Madrid
Alvaro Morata started just six games in all competitions for Real Madrid during the 2013/14 season, and manager Carlo Ancelotti has hinted that the 21-year-old forward could leave the club on loan.
Only a few days earlier, Madrid president Florentino Perez told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser (h/t Sky Sports) that there is no chance of Morata joining Juventus.
Romelu Lukaku an Option for Juventus
He has already indicated that many clubs are interested in him, and it seems Juventus could take the 21-year-old Belgian on loan with an option to buy.
Reports from Sky Sport Italia (h/t Forza Italian Football) suggest that Lukaku is valued at €25 million by his current club.
Lukaku scored 15 goals in 31 appearances on loan at Everton.
Lots of Money for Paul Pogba
The Observer revealed at the weekend that the Frenchman is open to the idea of returning.
Pogba left United on a free transfer after being forced to train alone. He said in a BBC interview in May it was "disrespect." He has since transformed into a key midfielder for Juventus, scoring seven goals in Serie A last season.
