Juventus close in on Benedikt Howedes.
Sky Sport Italia have reported that Juventus and FC Schalke 04 are close to reaching an agreement which will see German defender Benedikt Howedes make a switch to The Old Lady.
Juventus director Beppe Marotta had his say on this situation when he publicly said, that the German’s arrival at the club was ‘more than just a hypothesis’
“We won’t deny that we had contacts; Howedes represents an interesting profile, but we still have to work out contractual issues with him and with Schalke 04. He is an option, perhaps more than just a hypothesis,” Marotta said.
The proposal is believed to include a €2-3 million fee for a season-long loan with the option to make the deal permanent for an additional €7-8 million at the end of the 17/18 campaign.
Massimiliano Allegri has always had a penchant for Versatility and Benedikt Howedes’ will fit that bill just right. He is predominantly a center back but equally adept in playing on both sides of the defense.
