Schalke's Benedikt Howedes agrees Juventus personal terms - agent

Paolo Bandini previews the Serie A season and explains how several clubs can complicate Juve's hope of continued dominance.
Blaise Matuidi admitted it is an honour to join Juventus following his move from Ligue 1 side PSG.

Juventus have agreed personal terms with Schalke defender Benedikt Howedes, according to the Germany international's agent.

New coach Domenico Tedesco took the captain's armband away from Howedes, 29, earlier this month and then left the centre-back on the bench for their Bundesliga opening 2-0 win over Schalke last weekend. 

Howedes has been at Schalke since 2001 but his agent, Volker Struth, said he now wants to leave Gelsenkirchen.

"Juve want it, Benedikt Howedes wants it, we have an agreement in principle," Struth told Bild on Friday. "Schalke now also must want it."

Benedikt Howedes has been at Schalke since 2001 but his importance has diminished under Domenico Tedesco.

Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta on Thursday said a deal for Howedes "is more than hypothetical," but Schalke sporting executive Christian Heidel told Reviersport: "There is no contact with Juventus.

"Mr Marotta did not speak with anyone here. If he wants to talk about Benedikt with me, that would be the legitimate approach."

Addressing the speculation, Heidel said: "Howedes was at Inter yesterday, it's Juve today, and maybe it's Liverpool tomorrow."
