According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Liverpool’s Emre Can has agreed a deal to move to Juventus this summer.
The German midfielder, also capable of deputizing in defence, came to Liverpool on a four-year contract in 2014, and that is now set to expire. There have been many reports of negotiations for a new deal going back and forth, and the problem that was mostly quoted as the stumbling block for a deal to be struck was the club’s refusal to include a buy-out clause in their offer. There have also been some reports of the player wanting a huge salary but Can himself has rubbished such claims more than once.
It would rather appear that the 24-year-old is unhappy with his status at the club, and sought assurances he would be starting more games in the future, which is something manager Jürgen Klopp is reluctant to give. Whether he got such assurances from the Italians remains unknown, but Gazzetta dello Sport report that the allegedly agreed five-year deal will see him earn €6 million per season in Turin.
