Porto star set to join Juventus

FC Porto midfielder Fredy Guarin is set to complete an 11million move to Italian giants Juventus.

Guarin's agent has revealed that his client will sign a deal later on Monday after the two clubs agreed on a transfer fee.

Guarin's agent Marcelo Ferreyra told O Jogo: "It seems certain at this point Fredy Guarin will be a Juventus player and today the news will be confirmed.

"To reach the agreement both Porto and Juventus had to compromise.

"The Portuguese club will get 11million and not 13m as they wanted, even if the amount goes up if he scores some goals.

"In turn, the Bianconeri will pay 4m immediately, and not 2m as they had originally proposed. They will pay the other 7m next summer."
