Parma director shuts down early exit for Kulusevski

Parma director shuts down early exit for Kulusevski

Even though Juventus confirmed it in an official statement when they announced the signing, there has still been speculation as to whether Dejan Kulusevski will remain at Parma until the end of the season or join the Bianconeri earlier than expected.

By the looks of it, this matter has now been solved, as Parma has no intention of parting ways with the Swedish youngster just yet. In an interview with Radio Punto Nuovo, their sporting director Daniele Faggiano reiterated their intentions.

"Our goal is to keep him until June, he's one of us and serious professional. Juve can give me what they want, but Kulusevski is a Parma player," he concluded.

The Swedish talent was signed by the Bianconeri for next season, paying €35m plus an additional €9m in bonuses, thus beating Inter in the race. However, Maurizio Sarri is pushing to have the player at his disposal straight away.

As confirmed by the words of the Parma director, though, at the moment every attempt has failed and Kulusevski is all set to remain at the club until the end of the season.
