JUVENTUS EYEING FREE TRANSFER SIGNING

Italian football heavyweights Juventus are reportedly keen to sign a Premier League player on a free transfer this summer.

Spanish playmaker Juan Manuel Mata is a Premier League player having represented the duo of Chelsea and Manchester United over the last one decade in the English top flight.

Juan Mata will be a free agent this summer when his Manchester United contract expires as the Red Devils are not expected to prolong his stay at the Theatre of Dreams. Manchester United have the option to keep Juan Mata at the club for an extra year as part of the clause in his contract but there's no indication that the club would activate that clause.

Conte confident Romelu Lukaku will be an excellent signing for Inter

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is confident that Romelu Lukaku will be an excellent signing for the club once he adapts to the demands of the Serie A. The Belgium international was regularly linked with the Nerazzurri throughout the summer and he eventually made the move to the San Siro before the Premier League transfer deadline.

Speaking to Inter TV, Conte said that he has no doubts regarding the quality of the former Anderlecht graduate and he is confident that he can prove his credentials at the club. However, the former Chelsea boss acknowledged that Lukaku needs to work hard on the physical and tactical point of view before commanding a regular place with the team, he quipped: "He also needs to work hard, both from a physical point of view and to get used to the way we're trying to go about things. He'll certainly be an excellent signing, we're really happy. He'll show great desire and commitment to get himself ready."
