Juventus to talk Verratti

Juventus officials will reportedly resume talks with the agent of Pescara teenager Marco Verratti on Thursday.

The Under-21 international, still just 19, is a known transfer target for the champions but agreeing a deal is proving to be problematic.

Juve have made an €8m offer for the central midfielder, but the newly promoted outfit want €12m for his signature.

Club officials are set to speak with Domenico Di Campli at some stage tomorrow for an evaluation of the situation.

Verratti is also of interest to clubs such as Inter, Genoa, Roma and Napoli, but the player is keen to sign for the Turin giants.

However, Pescara and Verratti are pushing for any deal to include the option for them to stay together for the 2012-13 campaign.

Pescara will be playing in Serie A next term after winning the Serie B title under the guidance of boss Zdenek Zeman. He has now joined Roma.
