According to Sky Sport Italia, Juventus and Pjaca’s current employer, Dynamo Zagreb have reached an agreement on a deal that will see the 21-year-old Croatian striker make his way to Turin this summer.
After impressing for Croatia at Euro 2016, a number of the continent’s biggest clubs scrambled to sign the Dinamo Zagreb starlet. At one point, it seemed as if Liverpool were leading the way. Then, it was reported that a deal had been agreed with Inter (Pjaca even had to take to Facebook to issue a denial) before it was finally claimed that AC Milan had cleverly outmanoeuvred their rivals by offering to let the 21-year-old attacker remain in Zagreb until the end of August so that he could help Dinamo try to reach the group stage of the Champions League.
Pjaca’s arrival will add to an already impressive haul by Beppe Marotta, Fabio Paratici and the rest of the Juventus management team who have now signed Miralem Pjanic, Dani Alves, Medhi Benatia with Pjaca expected to sign a five year deal with the bianconeri.
