Juventus: keen on Martial. AC Milan: duel with Inter for Benteke
As reported last night, Juventus and their coach Antonio Conte have decided to continue their experience together; according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, during yesterday’s meeting, the 45 year old has asked his executive board not to sell 25 year old Arturo Vidal and 20 year old Paul Pogba, both midfielders, and to sign between 7 and 8 high-level players, expecially regarding the offensive line; it seems that Conte has accepted the fact that the Piedmontese club will make a massive investment only in one year, while in the next transfer window it will try to sign at least three or four important players. The bianconeri have then started to work on the transfer market, and, according to the same media, they will try to obtain immediately Real Madrid 25 year old Gonzalo Higuain and then to swoop on their first choice, Fiorentina 23 year old Stevan Jovetic: perhaps, interviewed by Radio Kiss Kiss, FIFA agent Salvatore Bagni has declared that Fali Ramadani, agent of the Montenegro international, has revealed him that his client will join the Italian Champions. Juve are also interested in some young talents, and, still regarding the offensive line, they have started to negotiate, according to L’Equipe, with Lyon for 17 year old Anthony Martial.
Also AC Milan are trying to reinforce their offensive line, and, according to the Daily Mirror, are in competition with their city rivals Inter for Aston Villa 22 year old Christian Benteke, valued about 25 million pounds by the English club. But, as reported earlier today, the priority for the rossoneri is the signing of a midfielder, and, interviewed by Radio Sportiva, Sampdoria Sports Director Carlo Osti has confirmed that the Lombard club has been observing 23 year old Andrea Poli, though it seems that for the moment there have been no official contacts.
