Juventus can lose Schick

Sampdoria have warned Juventus that they are not going to wait much longer for The Old Lady to make a decision.

Sampdoria winger Patrik Schick might miss out on a potential move to Juventus. The 21-year-old travelled to Turin last month to complete his medical after both clubs agreed on a fee of  €25 million.  However, Juventus have still not finalised the deal as rumours suggest that Serie A champions might have found an issue regarding the player’s health. Allegri’s side want to sign Schick on a season-long deal.

Sampdoria owner Massimo Ferrero has warned Juve that the player will join another club if they continue to drag out the deal.

“It’s a farce,” Ferrero told Secolo XIX. “He’s not healthy, he’s really healthy. What they found is the equivalent of a cold!

“If Juventus want to back out, we’ll sell him to one of the other four clubs that are ready to buy him.

“I think he’ll eventually go to Juventus. If not, we’ll take him back and add a nice ‘maybe’, given his release clause has now expired and we can sell him for not just €30m but possibly €40-50m.”

“Sampdoria won’t go back a millimetre on any agreements.

“The boy is healthy, he can play, but now we have to worry about who has put out rumours that could damage the image of one of the brightest talents in European football.”
