Especially the signing of Vlahovic, who had been on fire in Serie A with Fiorentina. Juventus signed him for a mind-blowing fee of 66 million euros. For that amount of money, Juventus are getting a striker who has already scored 20 goals in all competitions this season.

Fiorentina President talks about the Vlahovic deal

Football journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed that Fiorentina’s president, Rocco B. Commisso, isn’t happy with his former star. Commisso accused Vlahovic of being dishonest with the club and revealed that he wanted to emulate another young, top-level striker.

Vlahović deal was full of dishonesty and liars. We opened talks with English clubs – every time a new offer came up, Vlahović and his agents said no. Their plan was the same as Mbappé with PSG: leave as a free agent and make money,” the club president said.

There were a lot of rumours about clubs from abroad, but it was an easy choice for me [to sign for Juventus]. This club has a winning mentality, like me. I’m extremely happy – I’m joining a glorious club and this is what I wanted. I can’t wait,” Vlahovic said.
