With the imminent capture of Adrien Rabiot from PSG, Juventus is carrying on with their healthy habit of finding top-quality players available on free transfers.
Of course, signing-on fees and higher salaries demanded by players moving on Bosman (free) transfers make a dent on the budget, but overall these deals still represent great value for clubs.
Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey represents a coup for the club, arriving as a 28-year-old at the peak of his powers, after an 11-year stint at Arsenal. His wealth of experience and versatility could prove priceless for the Old Lady of Turin. Aaron Ramsey, now, is the latest in a string of shrewd pieces of business pulled off by the Juventus board.
Experienced centre back Andrea Barzagli cost Juventus a sum of 270k back in 2011and has gone on to make over 70 appearances for Italy and is still a valuable member of the squad. But which players have Juventus paid absolutely nothing for in recent years?
