There is still no agreement with Juventus but except for sensational surprises Filip Kostic will be a new striker of the Italian club. Juve prepared the final offensive against the German club holder of the winger, with a request close to 20 million.
Juve would like to lower the request up to 15 million, with the parties working to promote the agreement. Max Allegri, Juventus manager, would like Kostic to be available already between Wednesday and Thursday to be able to insert him immediately in the group having to prepare the debut with Sassuolo even without the suspended Adrien Rabiot and Moise Kean as well as all the injured.
The Serbian took the field as a starter in the internal defeat of his Eintracht against Bayern Munich, in what was probably his last game with the Europa League winning club, on Wednesday there is the European Super Cup with Real but at that moment Kostic could also already be a Juve player.
There is an agreement: Filip Kostic had already been proposed and then dealt with by Juve at the beginning of the market, with a three-year contract of 3.5 million net bonuses included. Then Juve's strategy took other directions, before the return of the negotiation.
Before the request for information if there were still margins for insertion with respect to the agreement with West Ham, having acknowledged the fact that for Kostic the priorities had not changed, the machine was then restarted.
Dusting off the economic and planning agreement with the player was not a problem, West Ham was put on hold and then kindly discharged, waiting for the agreement between Juve and Eintracht.
