Nicolas Anelka undergoes medical before transfer to Juventus

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.
