Juventus will face Real Madrid in Cardiff on 3 June, and both sides are reportedly already looking at strengthening their squads for next season.

The Italian giants have made some great signings over the years, and are now apparently eyeing Barca's Rafinha.

The 24-year-old has missed 20 games through injury this season, and the Catalan giants are reportedly prepared to listen to offers for the attacking midfielder.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are prepared to offer €25 million (R364 million) for the player.

Rafinha made 28 appearances for the Blaugrana this season, scoring seven goals and assisting another five strikes.

Overall, the Barca youth product has made 78 senior appearances for the club and lifted eight trophies since making his first team debut in November 2011.

@Tedd the release clause is just something teams use to stop other teams from easily getting their players,however if its not met by the other teams then that owning team is free to sell that player with whatever money regardless of the clause

Can someone help me understand something "is it possible to sell a player with less money than their release clause stipulates provided that the player wants nothing to do with the team and the team wants them gone" and no one is willing to meat that clause.
