The Bianconeri have a pressing matter to deal with first in the race for the Scudetto, but boss Fabio Capello has requested that the Serie A minnows allow four of their contingent to accompany his side to the Far East once the season has drawn to a close.
Capello (pictured) wants to take a look at Alessandro Parisi, Marco Zanchi, Salvatore Aronica and Atsushi Yanagisawa, with many of the current Juve squad set to miss the trip due to international commitments.
The Bianconeri will be engaged in Japan from May 30 until June 8, and for two of the Messina quarter it will represent a return to their parent club as Zanchi is still owned by Juve whilst Aronica is part-owned by the Turin giants.
Parisi's involvement may give Capello the edge in any potential deal for the impressive defender, as Manchester United and Valencia have been credited with an interest in the man who became Messina's first ever Italian international earlier this year.
