Vucinic-Guarin deal progresses

Mirko Vucinic and Fredy Guarin look set to complete formalities on their swap between Juventus and Inter during the course of today.

Reports first indicated a swap deal was on yesterday morning, before both players were seen to have cleared their lockers at respective current clubs to head out to Milan for talks and medical examinations to complete the deal.

However, the move looked close to collapse by the early evening, amid reports that the Nerazzurri were reacting to the negative public reception of the transfer.

But, on from further developments that placed Vucinic as undergoing a medical in Milan, it is believed that the move is being pushed through, in part down to the players’ wishes.

The Montenegrin is seen to have spent the night in Milan and to have completed medical checks ahead of the move, whilst also agreeing to a prospective contract of two-and-a-half years.

Guarin is believed set to complete similar formalities during Tuesday, after returning home to Milan overnight.

Meanwhile, it is believed that as part of the deal, Inter will also receive a cash payment of around €1.5m from Juve, as ‘economic adjustment’ to cover the difference in valuation between Vucinic and Guarin.

Inter’s quick move for Vucinic is believed by Sky Sport Italia as reaction to Coach Walter Mazzarri’s direct request for a striker, on from defeat at the weekend to Genoa.
