Juve-Pescara-Verratti talks tomorrow

Pescara will again meet with Italian champions Juventus on Tuesday in a bid to finally do a deal for Marco Verratti.

The Old Lady want the 19-year-old, but reaching a compromise with his current club over a transfer fee is proving problematic.

“There is nothing official, but Juventus have a great interest in him,” President Daniele Sebastiani told Radio Sportiva.

“They were the first club to come forward and we will see them again tomorrow for Verratti.

“However, we have other offers for the boy so we will have to wait and see because we will have to re-design our team this summer.

“We only want players in exchange who have the technical needs for our project.”

The Turin giants met with the newly promoted outfit last week where it is believed they offered €5m for his co-ownership. In return, Verratti would remain with the Delfini for 2012-13.

Pescara value the Under-21 international midfielder at around €12m.
