Romulo & Damiao for Juve

Romulo & Damiao for Juve

After giving up on Carlos Tevez, Juventus are focusing on two South American starlets: Romulo Borges Monteiro and Leandro Damiao.

Romulo is a centre midfielder and Vasco da Gama has set a 6M Euros transfer fee. But Juve are ready to invest only 4M on the 22-year-old player while they keep an eye on Riccardo Montolivo. The Italian player could move to Turin in January if the Bianconeri agreed to sell Fabio Quagliarella to Fiorentina next summer.

Regarding Damiao, Juve director Fabio Paratici has already met up with agent Vinicius Prates. The negotiations for the 23-year-old striker are much more complicated considering that Inter and Barcelona are also following him. Internacional won't settle for anything less than 20M which is perhaps a bit too much for the Bianconeri’s budget.
