After reputed Italian journalist Fabrizioi Romano reported yesterday that Aaron Ramsey to Juventus is a done deal, it is only a matter of time before the Bianconeri will have another superstar in their ranks, whose services they are due to secure without having to pay a penny as transfer fee.
Over the years, the club from Turin has not only been one of the best clubs in Europe on the field, but has also done some great deal of business off the pitch, especially when it comes to midfielders.
Some clubs consider themselves lucky when they land a great player or two for free free, but when a club does it almost every transfer window, it is not luck anymore; it is shrewd business.
Well, they did break the bank to sign Cristiano Ronaldo last summer for €100 million, but it is a fact that they have almost never let a top free agent slip past them..
So, without further ado, let's take a look at the 5 players that Juventus signed for free and got their wage money's worth.
#5 Emre Can
We kick off our list with the latest player to complete a transfer to the Allianz Stadium, defensive midfielder Emre Can.
The Bayern Munich academy product emerged as a key member of the Liverpool side under Jurgen Klopp that challenged Real Madrid for the UEFA Champions League glory last season. Emre Can joined Juventus on a four-year deal from Liverpool last summer, after impressing one and all by his consistent performances as the midfield marshal for the Reds.
He became just the 10th German player to don the famous Black and White stripes when he made his Serie A debut against Chievo Verona on 18 August last year.
He was one of the hottest free agents of the last season and naturally Juventus, who are experts in free transfers, sealed the deal.
