Juventus have been in negotiations over the weekend to seal the arrival of the highly rated Perugia midfielder David Baiocco, but the 26-year-old will then be immediately loaned out to Udinese in exchange for the Friuli captain Valerio Bertotto.
The capture of central defender Bertotto will complete Marcello Lippi's summer of reinforcing the Juventus defence. The 28-year-old was in commanding form for Udinese last season and his impressive displays brought him international recognition for Italy.
Juventus will this week also meet with free agent Josep Guardiola. The 30-year-old midfielder is out of contract at Barcelona but is currently on holiday.
