The details were also defined: 75 million for the price tag, 63 million for the gross salary and 15 million in commissions to agents. Jersey number: 28 preferred to 7
The script of the new black and white film starring Dusan Vlahovic was written by chance, yet it seems to come from the witty pen of Woody Allen. Today, barring unforeseen events, Dusan Vlahovic will officially become a Juventus player on his 22nd birthday. Even before a slice of cake, he will ask for a pen to affix the most important of the autographs, the signature on the contract that will bind him to the Lady for the next 4 and a half years. The boy with 150 million euros and 17 goals in 21 Serie A matches is now only waiting for the moment to become official. He like all the Juventus people, awakened from the torpor of a hitherto unsatisfactory season by an incredible market hit, the most sensational of the Italian session in January.
His last hours in Florence remain shrouded in mystery. The striker slept in Turin yesterday, this morning he will have medical examinations and from this it can be deduced that his swab was negative, since Vlahovic was presumably one of the two players whose positivity Fiorentina announced last Saturday (without however communicating the names for privacy: he and Saponara have not been called up for the match against Cagliari and the deduction is quite simple).
The Serbian got the green light after the last obstacle, that of the commissions, was overcome. Vlahovic at Juventus is a deal worth over 150 million euros, a monstrous investment by the Juventus club, which has decided to bring forward the purchase of the center forward from June to January because it does not want to run the risk of staying out of the Champions League: 75 million for the card, 63 for the gross salary and 15 for commissions to agents.
The negotiation with Fiorentina was lightning-fast, the one with the player’s agents lasted a little longer, but in less than 36 hours Juventus fixed everything and secured the center forward of the present and the future, the number nine who Massimiliano Allegri wanted to revitalize a troubled department. Let’s retrace the steps: on Tuesday the Juventus and Viola managers reached an agreement for the sale of the Serbian striker for 75 million: 67 plus 8 bonuses. Immediately after, Commisso’s club gave Vlahovic’s entourage the go-ahead to deal with Juventus. The general agreement for Dusan’s salary was already there (7 million euros net per season for 4 and a half years), some details remained to be discussed, especially related to the commissions. The meetings took place between the club’s headquarters, Continassa, and the nearby J Hotel. Yesterday was the decisive day because Darko Ristic, the attorney who manages all of Vlahovic’s affairs, arrived. Perhaps there were also some moments of tension between the parties, but the deal was never questioned and there was never a feeling that it could come to a break. There is still no clarity about the figures that will go to the agent, but we are talking about fifteen million.
Vlahovic waited patiently in his home in Florence, from which he will now have to take all his belongings away. Turin is waiting for you, where in the past great numbers nine, Vialli, Trezeguet, Higuain have lived. Today, his twenty-second birthday, a new life will begin for him. New teammates, a new coach, a new shirt and maybe even a new number. He would have liked nine, which however is already on Alvaro Morata’s shoulders: if the Spaniard will remain Dusan will have to choose another. The suggestion is the 7 left free by Cristiano Ronaldo, who in the past belonged to Causio, Bettega (in the last phase of his career), but it is more likely that the boy will choose the 28, with which he began his adventure at Fiorentina.
Jugovic sent me
Today Vlahovic will meet Allegri for the first time, who strongly wanted him and who is counting on him a lot. At stake is the fourth place, from next season they will try to raise the bar to return to compete for the Scudetto as well. With Juventus he will also make his debut in the Champions League. He is Serbian like Vladimir Jugovic, the player who in 1996 gave the Lady the last European Cup as a gift, transforming the decisive penalty. The Juventus fans can now start dreaming big again.
