Isla nears Juventus exit

Juventus full-back Mauricio Isla is set to leave Turin in the summer transfer window, reports Tuttosport.

The Bianconeri splashed €18.4 million on Kwadwo Asamoah and Mauricio Isla last summer, but only to acquire the players on co-ownership deals.

Club officials now need to make a decision whether to buy the two players outright or cut their losses and allow them to return to Udinese.

With the Ghanaian midfielder having largely impressed in a full-back role this term, there is a good chance that Juventus will exercise the option to buy out the remaining 50% of his contract, but they are unlikely to do the same with Mauricio Isla.

The Chilean has struggled since arriving at the club from Udinese and the Bianconeri plan to cash in on him in the summer and sign Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado instead.

Isla has made just 8 Serie A appearances this term, having failed to challenge Stephan Lichtsteiner for a starting berth.
