Having almost reached an agreement to bring Aaron Ramsey midfielder from Arsenal this summer, Juventus continues to add people in the middle and aims to increase creativity. Paulo Dybala is just a player and Juventus wants more mutants on the attacking front, not just doing interceptors like Matuidi, Khedira, Pjanic, Emre Can or Bentancur.
Tuttosport newspaper recently said that it is difficult to buy Isco from Real Madrid but Juventus will still persevere, because they are very fond of the ability to make mutations from the Spanish midfielder’s passes.
