Kingsley Coman: Has joined Juventus

Kingsley Coman: Has joined Juventus

Coman finalised a move to the Italian champions earlier this week after he refused to sign a new deal with Paris Saint Germain.

The highly-rated 18-year-old midfielder made his first-team bow for PSG last season having come through the youth system of his hometown club.

But he decided his future was best served elsewhere and has decided to join Juve after insisting that he shunned the chance to move to the Premier League in the process.

"There were Newcastle, Arsenal and Tottenham interested in me too," he is quoted by Italian daily the Corriere dello Sport. 

"But I have chosen Juventus because I love their history. This was the club of Platini, Zidane and Trezeguet."

Many in France believe that Coman's move could mirror that of Paul Pogba, who decided to leave Manchester United in similar circumstances and, within 18 months, became one of football's most sought-after players.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
