Milan: French striker Nicolas Anelka underwent a medical ahead of his proposed move to Juventus.

The 33-year-old French striker conducted the standard medical tests at Turin`s Istituto di Medicina dello Sport centre Sunday morning, a statement from Juventus said.

The Shanghai Shenhua forward arrived in a private jet Saturday night and is due to be paid 600,000 euros for five months, plus performance-related bonuses and an option to extend for another year.

PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti believed Juventus have done good business by bringing in Anelka.

"Anelka is a great player. He trained with us for a week and can play in any club in the world, so I`m sure he`ll do well in Turin. He is coming off a vacation and just like everyone who has not played for a while he will need the right training schedule," said Ancelotti.

It should never be termed as an Indian or an overseas coach. We need to get over such things. You need to be competent enough.
