In the crew of footballers currently struggling to engage in some first team action, Emre Can certainly has a prime spot. Consequently, the Juventus midfielder is inclined towards hitting the headlines in January, securing a move to another club.
Maurizio Sarri, the Juve-manager, has been overlooking the German recently, even excluding him from the starting XI in their clash against Udinese. The ex-Liverpool midfielder was said to have given definite assurances over his role in the team. However, the Italian gaffer has failed to make use of the talents of the 25-year-old.
The former Liverpool man expressed his shock, stating: “It was very shocking for me because last week I was told and promised something else. Yesterday I got a call from the coach, in which he told me in less than a minute and without explanation that I was not in the squad.
“I can not explain it, nobody has given me a reason until now. Me and my agent had talks with other clubs, Paris [Saint-Germain] as well. After discussions with Juventus, we decided to stay with the club. A condition was to play in the Champions League, and that was what I was promised.
“Yesterday it was said – one day after the transfer period ended – that I’m not in. It just makes me angry how they’ve dealt with me. I’ll deal with the consequences when I get back and talk to the club. I want, and I have, to play in the Champions League.”
Accordingly, the German is reportedly likely to be handing over a transfer request in the winter transfer window, expecting to make use of his foot elsewhere.
As per the reports of Goal, Idrissa Gueye and Ander Herrera’s signing in the previous window will have ruled out the chances of the Juventus midfielder ending up in Paris Saint Germain.
However, since a few top clubs including Manchester United have been linked with the player, it’s possible for the supporters to witness a move away soon enough.
