The return operation Miralem Pjanic to Juventus It has been on stand-by for many days and, less than two weeks after the transfer market closes, it is still blocked by a previous procedure that the Turin club has not yet been able to solve: the departure of Aaron Ramsey. The problem is that the Welsh midfielder has a high chip, seven million euros, the fourth highest in Turin, and that obstacle makes it difficult for him to appear, even in the powerful Premier League. Pjanic, who does not count for Barça a year after his arrival, is still waiting because he knows that Massimiliano Allegri, Juve coach, has not forgotten him. Not even the brand new signing of Manuel Locatelli It has erased the Bosnian Barça midfielder from the thoughts of a coach who took great advantage of the environment in their four joint seasons at the ‘vecchia signora’.
Locatelli does not exclude the signing of Pjanic. In any case, what would leave the azulgrana out of Juve is the ‘Ramsey case’. The 23-year-old Italian international underwent a medical examination on Wednesday prior to his signing for Juve, which after arduous negotiation with him Sassuolo reached an agreement to complete the operation. His arrival configures an Italianized Juventus that connects with the successful tradition of the club, in the eighties with the Dino zoff, Gaetano scirea, Antonio Cabrini, Claudio Gentile, Marco Tardelli and Paolo rossi, the 90’s with Angelo Peruzzi, Roberto Baggio, Fabrizio Ravanelli and Gianluca vialli or that of the turn of the century with Gianluigi buffon, Fabio Cannavaro, Gianluca Zambrotta, Mauro Camoranesi and Alessandro del Piero. Locatelli joins the Italian Legion that now make up Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci, Federico Chiesa and Federico Bernardeschi.

Just in case, Allegri doesn’t relegate Ramsey
As a cautious coach, he is worth two, just in case, Allegri has not relegated Ramsey from his preseason plans, as Barça is doing with Pjanic, with a testimonial participation for the coach Ronald Koeman. Ramsey has played as an important piece in the wide ‘bianconera’ zone.
