Juventus is already thinking about the future, and Agnelli's club has upped their interest in Patrik Schick. Juventus is having positive contacts with both the player and his agent. Pavel Nedved, who strongly admires Schick, has become important in attempts to convince the striker. But even Sampdoria has seemed willing to cede in negotiations, although they would like to keep Schick for another year on loan. However, the player's entourage is not convinced about staying another year at Sampdoria.
Contacts continue with Juventus as they are ahead of the competition in the race to sign Patrik Schick even if the deal has not yet been completed. Paska, the player's agent, will be in Italy next week to evaluate the situation. Sampdoria has a buyout clause of 25 million, and clubs will negotiate the specific terms of the payment, if a deal happens to materialize. Napoli attempted to do so, but there would not be much space for the striker in Naples. Inter and Roma also made attempts, but Schick is pushing for a move to Juventus.
