From the no of Juve to the yes of Inter, the background on Patrik Schick negotiation
Let’s ask a direct question. Why is it that a player was no longer good for Juventus on Tuesday and on Wednesday, he became that for Inter? That player is Patrik Schick.
Here is the story: Juve got their hands on the player in the end of May for 30 million. He concluded the U21 European championship and underwent a series of physical and medical tests. After which, there was silence. Until he found out that those tests now required a follow-up. No serious problem, just something that Sampdoria and Juventus staff needed to reflect. As a result, Juventus medical staff wanted to renegotiate the deal to a loan move with right to sign because the player needed a short rest. And to these new conditions, Sampdoria said no.
Then came the new turning point that happened yesterday. Inter called Samp to sit down to talk about Schick. The terms of transaction were already there (initial agreement between Samp and Juve) and here is the question: why the no of Juve on Tuesday and the yes of Inter on Wednesday? It is a question of time, expectations, evaluations and necessities. Juve changed their conditions the moment they found out that Schick needed 45-50 days to be back on top physically. Inter wanted Schick before Juve. The two protagonists of the deal are Suning technical director Walter Sabatini and coach Luciano Spalletti. Both wanted to bring the player to Roma a year ago. Inter, in contract to Juve, have no problem to wait. They are convinced of this investment in a long time target in Schick.
The player will have more chance to play in Milan. At Juve, there are Higuain, Dybala, Douglas Costa and the incoming Bernardeschi. At Inter, there will be Icardi, Perisic is going to leave, Palacio is gone. The space is there. And he can fit in very well.
