Marko Pjaca’s future is increasingly clear, as reports appear claiming that the young Croatian striker will join Fiorentina for the upcoming 2018/2019 campaign as a loan player with La Viola.
The Domino effect of the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus in the summer transfer window this year is truly visible. Ronaldo, of course, will be Bianconneri’s mainstay next season, and along with him, other strikers will most likely not get a play. Higuain, who became the mainstay of last season, decided to leave for AC Milan.
Meanwhile, the future of young star Marko Pjaca, also became a conversation, considering that since last season the concerned also rarely got the chance to appear. There was a lack of clarity about the future of Pjaca at Juventus, but as recent reports are heard, this 23-year-old player will join one of Juventus’s rivals in Italy, Fiorentina.
Yes, the 23-year-old Croatian international winger will be a part of the La Viola squad for the 2018/19 season, after going through complicated negotiations. Juventus were initially only willing to permanently release Pjaca with a repurchase clause within the agreed duration.
The transfer process was hampered when Fiorentina wanted to bring in players who were loaned to Schalke last season as loans with a permanent purchase option. But according to Sky Sport Italia reports, an agreement has been reached. Pjaca arrived at Artemio Franchi with a loan of € 2 million plus € 20 million as a purchase option at the end of this season.
According to reports from the same media, Juventus have reached an agreement to put the player’s buyback clause from Fiorentina with the cheapest price of 26 million euros. Pjaca decided to move to Fiorentina despite his interest in Sampdoria and the English Premier League champions in the 2015/16 season, Leicester City.
Last season, Pjaca himself underwent a joint loan period with the German Bundesliga Club, Schalke 04.
