thumbnail Hello,

The Italian winger is having his medical with the club and is expected to complete his move after the World Cup, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport...

Simone Pepe has taken another step towards joining Juventus as he undergoes his medical with the club in Turin, but he will not join them until after the World Cup, claims La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Pepe arrived in Turin this morning for the usual medical tests. He underwent the first stage of his assesment at the Fornaca clinic, before heading to the Centro Medicina Sport for his final tests.

However, he will not sign his contract with Juventus until after the World Cup. It is said the club are in no hurry to rush a deal, and they would prefer to wait until Pepe returns from South Africa.

A deal over the transfer with Udinese has long been in place. He will join on a co-ownership deal worth €10million which Juventus will pay over a four year term.

And, Pepe cannot wait to join the club. "I am motivated and ready to wear the shirt. My signature? I don't know. We will see after the World Cup," he said.

Meanwhile Juve have continued negotiations for Milos Krasic of CSKA Moscow. Having agreed terms with the player, they are trying to land the Serbian ace by offering the Russians €12.5m.

CSKA are holding out for €15m, but reports suggested Juve can reach the deal with some flexibility.
