Rumour: Juve to cash in on Can

Juventus are about to cash in on Emre Can.

According to Football-Italia, Juventus have both Bayern and Barcelona interested in buying the midfielder.

As we brought you earlier at Ronaldo.com, Juventus need to sell to generate cash to help balance the books.

They have spent big again, but have failed to offload the necessary dead weight from the payroll.

The only significant transfer was Moise Kean to Everton for 40 million Euros. But that is not enough for a healthy balance sheet.

It is only in recent hours that the battle for the players signature has intensified. Juventus would love nothing more than a bidding war to ensue.

Remember that Can is a player they picked up last year on a free transfer. The German international ran down his contract at Liverpool.

There is the talk of the fee being between 30 and 35 million Euros. While this would still leave the Bianconeri some way from balancing the books, it would register a great profit.

The former Liverpool man has yet to feature for Maurizio Sarri’s team yet this campaign. But last year was seen as a key figure, making 37 appearances, scoring four goals and adding one assist.

At only 25 years of age, he would be seen as somewhat of a bargain for Bayern or Barca as he would also have a great potential sell-on value in the future.

Bayern Munich is where it pretty much began for Can as a professional.

The fact that he was sold before he really managed to establish himself in the first team. Means he would love the chance to go back and set the record straight.

Barcelona simply sees him as the ideal long term replacement for Javi Martinez. With age on his side, there is an opportunity to prepare the player over the course of a season or two.
