Vucinic confirms move to Al Jazira from Juventus

Although neither club is yet to announce the deal, the striker took to social media to reveal it is official after reports that a €6 million fee had been agreed
Mirko Vucinic has announced his departure from Juventus for UAE club Al Jazira, although neither side is yet to confirm the deal.

The Montenegro international spent three seasons in Turin after joining for €15 million in July 2011 but, although in his first two years he saw plenty of first-team football, he fell out of Antonio Conte's favour in 2013-14.

With Carlos Tevez, Fernando Llorente, Fabio Quagliarella and Sebastian Giovinco already in the Juve striker ranks - and with other names linked with a possible switch to Turin this summer - Vucinic's chances were set to remain limited and so he has opted to move on to pastures new.

The fee for the former Roma striker, 30, has been reported to be around €6-7m and he was flown out to Abu Dhabi to finalise a three-year contract.

Vucinic confirmed the deal on his official Facebook page, ending his three consecutive years of Scudetto success under Conte at Juventus.
