The Turin giants will purchase the remaining 50 per cent of the attacker's rights from Parma, before cashing in on the Italy international this summer to free up fundsEXCLUSIVE

Juventus are keen to re-sign Sebastian Giovinco from Parma this summer, but intend to cash in on the attacker rather than keep him in Turin next season, Goal.com can reveal.
The Italy international came through the ranks of the Juventus youth academy, but the Old Lady sold 50 per cent of the player's rights to Parma in the summer of 2011.
Giovinco has become a key player for the Gialloblu having scored 15 goals and provided 11 assists in Serie a last term, and Juventus are determined to acquire the attacker's full economical rights.
Although head coach Antonio Conte is a keen admirer of the 25-year-old, Giovinco's future doesn't appear to lie in Turin as the 25-year-old demands regular first-team action, and Juventus cannot guarantee the Italy international a starting berth.
Therefore, Juventus are planning to cash in on Giovinco in the summer transfer window in order to generate funds to finance their own transfer plans, namely to sign a world-class striker.
Giovinco's agent recently revealed that Barcelona and Manchester City have shown an interest in signing the forward, while Napoli and Fiorentina are closely tracking the player's transfer status.
Juventus are eager to sign Napoli star Edinson Cavani ahead of the 2012-13 campaign, and they could include Giovinco in the deal in an attempt to convince the Partenopei to let go of the Uruguay international.
