Juventus are the king of the free transfer.
From Andrea Pirlo and Sami Khedira, to Dani Alves, Paul Pogba and Kingsley Coman, Juve really are experts at bringing in world-class talent without spending a penny.
Now they’re set for another one.

Well, actually, another three, because why just stop at one?
Juventus are hoping to sign Andres Iniesta, Emre Can and Leon Goretzka next summer, according to Tuttosport.
Clubs will be able to speak to all three in January if they don’t sign new contracts before then, with Juventus looking to sign a new look midfield on the cheap.

Iniesta has been at Barcelona since the age of 12 and made his first-team debut in October 2002.
However injuries have meant he hasn’t managed to play more than 30 league games in a single campaign since the 2013/14 season.
At the age of 33 the 120-cap midfielder is entering the twilight years of his career but, as Pirlo showed, that wouldn’t be a problem for Juventus.
Can has started this season in impressive form for Liverpool, establishing himself as a key part of Jurgen Klopp’s three-man midfield, alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson.
But Liverpool have added Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to the midfield area during the transfer window and RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita will link up with the squad next summer.
Schalke signed Goretzka from Bochum in 2013 and the midfielder was believed to be close to joining Bayern Munich next summer, but Juventus will look to persuade the 22-year-old otherwise.
While Juve are busy getting all these free transfers tied up, does anyone have Carl Jenkinson’s number knocking about?
