Emre Can Gets Big Pay Day For Joining Juventus
Rumours that Emre Can would leave the Premier League and move to Juventus were around for most of last season and finally he's joined the Serie A champions and with it earned a big signing on bonus.
The Germany midfielder's situation has been up in the air for sometime now, with Jurgen Klopp's side unable to tie him down to a new contract to keep him at Anfield beyond this summer.

Serie A giants Juventus have long been mentioned as potential suitors for the 24-year-old and his move to Italy was finally completed this afternoon, not long after he was photographed touching down in Turin.
And it's no wonder he turned down Klopp in favour of the move to Italy with the Liverpool Echo reporting that the German has been handed a whopping £14 million signing-on fee paid over two years.
He was once a fans' favourite amongst Liverpool supporters, and seen as a potential player Klopp could build his new-look midfield around, but it appears that goodwill is now firmly a thing of the past:

Juventus fans, if you think that was slow - wait until you see him play.

I'm still convinced Emre Can has bottled it by leaving LFC. He saw the competition coming in and decided he wasn't up for the fight. We don't need players like that at the club- Red Roger LFC #JFT96 (@rogerpsan) June 21, 2018
I'm finally glad that Emre Can is going to Juventus. Means that I cannot wait for Fabinho-Keita-Ox/Fekir midfield next season. Lovely.- JP (@JurgenPressed) June 21, 2018

Are Liverpool supporters right to be furious with Can for moving away from Merseyside?
And how do you think he'll fare in Italian football?
