Udinese full-back Maurizio Isla has virtually confirmed his proposed transfer to Serie A giants Juventus.
The Bianconeri have been tracking the Chilean midfielder for a while now and they intensified their efforts to sign him near the end of last season.
The Italian giants were negotiating a double swoop for Maurizio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah, and it appears the deal is set to be wrapped up.
“Thank you Udine for five wonderful years,” Isla wrote on his Twitter account.
“Thanks to you I am able to play for one of the biggest clubs in Italy. It was a pleasure playing with you.”
Both Isla and Asamoah have already completed medicals in Turin and they are expected to sign long-term deals with the Bianconeri on Monday.
The Chilean joined Udinese in August 2007 and has since developed into a key player at Friuli.
Isla made a name for himself by playing as a right wide man in Udinese’s 3-5-2 formation and he is expected to have the same role in Turin.
His teammate Kwadwo Asamoah has come a long way since joining the Zebrette in 2009 from Belinzona and is now regarded as one of the most talented midfielders in Serie A.
