    Juve, Conte says yes to Bastos

    Juve, Conte says yes to Bastos

    • L.T.

    Michel Bastos will be a Juventus player. His representatives will be in Turin soon to negotiate with the Italian club.

    There were two issues with his arrival, one practical (he is a non-EU player) and one technical-tactical. The Italian FA will probably re-allow the acquisition of two non-EU players and Bastos' arrival would not jeopardize that of Carlos Tevez.

    Antonio Conte, who did not see the Brazilian player in his game, changed his mind. Considering that Ziegler can play behind Bastos, he also gave his go-ahead.

    But the final agreement has still to be reached: Bastos' agent Emmanuel de Kerchove, and Florian Maurice, Lyon's director, will be in Turin on Thursday. The player will cost 13 million euro plus bonus.
