Uncertainties over Mirko Vucinic’s future has finally been resolved as on Monday night the striker has been officially announced as new Juventus striker after the Bianconeri agreed to pay around 15 million Euro to As Roma for his service.
After concluding his medical also on Monday, Vucinic penned a four year deal, ending the long summer saga, that led to some confusing destination regarding the Montenegro international future as not long ago he was also paired with Manchester United.
Vucinic’s arrival could very well ends Juventus’ interest over Giuseppe Rossi, who was previously being set as the Turin giant’s top target after losing Sergio Aguero to Manchester City. Despite of their strong will in signing Rossi, it seems that the Old Lady can’t find an agreement with Villareall, thus making the deal stopped and finally open the door wide open for the ex-As Roma striker to arrive and bolster the Bianoceneri’s attack.
Vucinic’s ability to play as a wide attacking player seems to be the main reason why Juve’s coach, Antonio Conte, consider him as a target, as the tactician plans to play the striker as his one of the attacking winger on his 4-2-4 formation. This decision could actually work very well for Conte as the ex-Lecce man has the skill set to play that role and although Vucinic didn’t have a good season, a new environment really could charged him up once again.
The Montenegro international ‘s arrival reportedly won’t be the last signing for Juventus, although they have been making plenty new purchases this summer in their bid to return themselves in the top flight in Serie A. Rumors stated that the Bianconeri management are still eying several players, who can be set as an alternative to fit Conte’s future tactic, such as Juan Vargas and also their central midfielder last summer, Alberto Aquilani, who was actually returned back to his club, Liverpool, as the Turin outfit refused to make the midfielder permanent after taking him on loan from Anfield last season.
