Hleb to Stuttgart, Caceres to Juventus in Loan Deals

Barcelona players Aliaksandr Hleb(27) and Martin Caceres(21) have officially joined Stuttgart and Juventus on loan deals.

Hleb was originally meant to be a part of the deal with Inter on Ibrahimovich. However, he suffered the same problem that he has at Barcelona all this time - he is too lazy to learn the language. Also, since he has played at Stuttgart for five years, he will be familiar with the surroundings.

Stuttgart will pay his entire salary for the duration of the loan, which is of one year.

Caceres meanwhile has joined Juventus on a year long deal which also includes a purchase clause of 10-12 million euros at the end. With central defenders of the calibre of Cannavaro and Chiellini in the Juventus squad, young Caceres could learn a lot.
