Goal confirms that Edin Dzeko is anticipated to join Juventus from Roma on a two-year deal, smashing Luis Suarez’s dream move to the champions of Serie A.
In a five-year stay in the Italian capital as part of the Andrea Pirlo upgrade at Allianz Stadium, the Bosnia and Herzegovina skipper will put the curtain down with a move to Turin.
The 34-year-old will sign a contract worth EUR 7.5 million a year in Piedmont for two years but the Bianconeri will pay EUR 16 million for his services to their rivals.
The move seems to have brought an end to the hopes of Barcelona hero Suarez moving to a European domestic champion after new Blaugrana boss Ronald Koeman told him he wasn’t included in his future plans.
Dzeko’s exit from Roma enables the veteran to bring his experience to a new chapter in his career as it reaches its late stages, as Paulo Fonseca’s side ready to welcome Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik into their ranks.
