Juventus Are Making Moves To Land Incredible Trio Of Free Agents
The window may have only just shut but Juventus are making movements in a bid to land three free agents in what would be a stunning triple deal.
The Bianconeri signed 12 players, including the likes of Blaise Matuidi, Douglas Costa, Federico Bernardeschi and Mattia De Sciglio, in a summer overhaul but are already planning ahead with transfer plans for next summer, with reports in Italy saying that the reigning champions are working on three massive deals that won't cost them a penny in terms of transfer fees.
According to Tuttosport, Max Allegri and his team are eyeing up moves for Emre Can, Andres Iniesta and Leon Goretzka and hope to have the out-of-contract trio in their ranks by the time next summer rolls around.
Liverpool midfielder Can, 23 has been in fine form for the Reds of late and Juventus have long been linked with the former Bayer Leverkusen man. As it stands, he is yet to sign a new deal at Liverpool and the talk is that Juve will get in touch with his representatives in January to offer a pre-contract, with Can free to speak to non-English clubs in the new year.
Juventus General Manager Beppe Marotta has already confirmed his interest in the Germany international and is waiting in the wings.
"Can's contract expires in June, which means we can negotiate in January," he told Mediaset.
"I cannot hide how much I like him, but he's a Liverpool player. All we can do is admire him."
In addition to Can, Juventus are also been linked with a move for Barcelona and Spain midfielder Andres Iniesta, who is also stalling on a new contract at Barcelona. The 33-year old, who joined the Blaugrana as a youngster, has made 632 appearances in a 21-year, trophy-laden spell at the club, but that could well be coming to an end, with Iniesta believed to more open to a move away from Catalonia than he ever has been.

And finally, having snapped up one of Schalke's key players on deadline day after securing the signature of World Cup winner Benedikt Howedes, The Old Lady are also hopeful of landing his compatriot Leon Goretzka, who starred for Germany at the Confederations Cup.
The 22-year old, whose contract expires next summer, has been subject to intense transfer speculation linking him to Bayern Munich, but Juventus are hoping to swoop in and bring the talented midfielder to Turin.
Of course, the situations of all three players could well change but if Juventus are able to pull off the hat-trick of free transfers, it will surely go down as one of the best bits of business in football history.
Can see the moves happening or will there be some news on the contract front for all three players?
