The track of Juan Jesus has also returned: Roma have followed the player for some time, however, Spartak Moscow are also interested.
Lastly, Roma and Juve are discussing the details of the payment method for Miralem Pjanic. Roma have accepted Pjanic will leave, however, they aren’t willing to offer a discount on the exit clause of the Bosnian: they want the clause paid in full and not installments. Juventus will have to pay €32 million instead of €30.4 million since Pjanic would give up the 15% he is owed in the clause and not 20% if payment is done in one installment.
