Juventus authorities discussed the issue of bringing a new striker with coach Massimiliano Allegri. A decision was to be made in the club to bet on Arkadiusz Milik – argues Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Turin team failed to find a new agreement with Atlético Madrid to re-establish cooperation with Álvaro Morata. In this way, he was forced to look around on the market for another valuable partner and competitor to Dušan Vlahovic.
Recently, it seemed that Barcelona-based Memphis Depay would be the winner. The Dutch representative was convinced relatively quickly to the possibility of continuing his career in Serie A. However, he was under a condition that his move to Juventus would become real when the existing contract with the “Catalonia Duma” was terminated.
The 28-year-old footballer made an agreement with the team from Camp Nou a few days ago and decided to use this fact to negotiate better conditions when establishing a two-year cooperation with the “Old Lady”.
This player’s approach to the subject did not appeal to the authorities of the titled Italian club, which turned to try to acquire Arkadiusz Milik.
The team from Turin negotiated the terms of the loan of the Polish striker for two million euros with an option to buy for eight million euros from Olympique Marseille at express pace and was to discuss internally on Tuesday the matter of completely focusing on bringing one of the offensive players.
Gianluca Di Marzio argues that Juventus representatives discussed the issue of attracting the new attacker with coach Massimiliano Allegri and decided to concentrate together on continuing efforts to acquire Milik.
The “Old Lady” will discuss the terms of cooperation with the agents of the Polish representative in the coming days and if there are no serious differences in this field, the 28-year-old player will fulfill his dream of joining the titled Italian team.
The center forward has been linked to the Turin side in the past when he was a Napoli player. At that time, his current employer placed difficult conditions on the league rival, which eventually led to Milik being loaned to Olympique de Marseille and bought back at the end of last season.
Milik played in 55 matches of the French club, noting 30 hits and three assists.
