Juventus Summer Transfer Deadline Tracker 2014: List of Moves and Rumours
Monday marks the final day in the summer transfer window, and Juventus are expected to make some last-minute sales and purchases. The Bianconeri appear to still be lacking a forward, while a number of players at the club are still deemed to be surplus to requirements.
Over the following pages is all the latest news and rumours surrounding the reigning Italian champions, and there will be regular updates throughout the day.
Cristian Pasquato Moves to Pescara
Sassuolo Opt for Consigli Not Storari
After being linked with a move for Marco Storari (h/t Football Italia), Sassuolo moved in a different direction in their search for a goalkeeper. With Gianluca Pegolo sidelined with a broken leg, the Neroverdi moved for Atalanta's Andrea Consigli rather than the Juventus reserve, with Gianluca Di Marzio confirming the deal here.
Paolo De Ceglie Moves to Parma
As was expected, there are reports on the peninsula that Juventus have agreed to send Paolo De Ceglie on a season-long loan to Parma. The news (h/t Football Italia) comes as no surprise, with the 27-year-old defender deemed surplus to requirements in Turin.
Meanwhile, Gianluca Di Marzio notes on his personal website that the Bianconeri have also agreed similar deals for Pol Garcia Tena and Vykintas Slivkas. The youth team players will join Serie B sides Vicenza and Modena respectively.
Falcao and Hernandez Deals Agreed
After being linked with Juventus in recent weeks, both Javier Hernandez and Radamel Falcao agreed moves elsewhere on Monday. Real Madrid announced the signing of the Mexican striker on their official website, revealing they had brought him from Manchester United on loan with an option to buy outright later.
Meanwhile, sources close to the Old Trafford club revealed they have reached agreement with Monaco for Falcao, with ESPN detailing his expected medical later today.
Falcao or Nobody for Juventus?
Despite denials from Beppe Marotta this weekend, Juventus are reportedly still attempting to bring Radamel Falcao to the club today. However, La Gazzetta dello Sport believe that should they fail, no other forward will arrive before the transfer window closes.
The pink paper notes strong interest from Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United, but goes on to add (h/t Football Italia) that if a deal cannot be agreed, the Bianconeri will wait until January to strengthen their attack.
Parma to Close Move for Paolo De Ceglie
It is reported this morning that officials from Juventus and Parma are meeting, with the transfer of Paolo De Ceglie the main topic of discussion. Gianluca Di Marzio wrote on his own website (link in Italian) that the deal should be completed today, with the 27-year-old no longer needed in Turin.
Javier Hernandez Chooses Real Madrid?
After strongly being linked with a move to Juventus this summer, it seems the Bianconeri will miss out on Javier Hernandez. The striker is seemingly surplus to requirements at Manchester United, and Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Real Madrid now look set to sign him.
Writing on his own website, the respected journalist stated on Sunday evening that the Spanish giants had begun to negotiate a loan switch, with an option to buy the player outright in the future.
Juventus Discuss Unlikely Falcao Move
Juventus have moved to distance themselves from reports linking the club with a move for Colombian striker Falcao. The Bianconeri have been rumoured to be attempting to sign the player on loan from Monaco, but Beppe Marotta believes the 28-year-old will instead opt to join a different side.
Speaking to Sky Italia before Saturday’s match against Chievo, the Juve director general said (h/t Football Italia):
Will Falcao come to Juve? I don’t think so. He was linked with Juventus because he appreciates us and that makes us proud, but if he does leave Monaco it’ll be for tens of millions and he’ll join a different top European club.
Adrien Rabiot Dropped by Paris Saint-Germain
Adrien Rabiot was left out of the Paris Saint-Germain squad this weekend, but the club insist that does not mean he is certain to leave. The 19-year-old seems almost certain to move however, with a raft of top clubs vying for his signature.
I don’t believe he’ll be replaced. But he’s still a PSG player, his departure isn’t yet official. Should he stay there won’t be problem. At the moment I can’t say anything
