Report: Juventus get Pereira
Tuesday May 17 2016
Juventus have reportedly signed Corinthians talent Matheus Pereira, but he’ll be loaned out next season.
The 18-year-old midfielder is considered one of the Brazilian club’s most promising talents, and has represented his country at Under-17 level.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, an agreement between the Bianconeri and the player was reached last Saturday.
It’s thought Pereira will receive a five-year contract worth €250,000 per season.
However, due to rules about non-EU players, the youngster will not play for the Turin club next season, and will be loaned out to gain Serie A experience.
It’s thought Empoli and Sassuolo represent the most likely options, as both have good relationships with the Old Lady.
