Schick Completes €25 Million Move To Juventus
The Bianconeri have activated the release clause in the 21-year-old striker’s contract, beating Serie A rivals Inter to his signature
Patrik Schick is set to complete his €25 million move to Juventus from Sampdoria after arriving in Turin to have his medical on Thursday.
The 21-year-old striker scored 11 goals in 32 Serie A games in his single season with Sampdoria, having joined from Sparta Prague for €4m last year.
Although the Czech Republic international was contracted to Sampdoria until 2020, he had long been the subject of interest from Juve and Inter , while Tottenham had been linked too.
He recently admitted a deal with Juventus was “possible” and it is indeed the Serie A champions who have won the race to sign him after activating a release clause in his contract.
Juve vice-chairman Pavel Nedved has previously likened Schick to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, though the striker
dismissed the comparisons to his idol.
