Juventus are now set to sign Arkadiusz Milik on a permanent transfer and work is being done on that front.
Milik had joined Juve on an initial loan deal last summer and he has clearly impressed for the Old Lady. His excellent free-kick against Cremonese in stoppage time on Wednesday was testament to that.
Corriere della Sera have now stated that the move is being made permanent by Juve, who are exercising their option to buy him for an initial fee of €7 million plus bonuses of €2 million more. Federico Cherubini has already made contact with Marseille and more progress on the permanent deal will be made after the 18th of January, when the Bianconeri’s board will have the first meeting.
Milik had picked up two ACL injuries during his time at Napoli and didn’t really have a great period at Marseille, but the Pole has done well for the Bianconeri and is shining at the highest level once again.
