Milan relaunch Iturbe offer

Milan Channel insist they are still in the race for Juan Manuel Iturbe amid reports of a new €28m bid to beat Juventus.

The Verona talent is at the centre of a bidding war after his impressive debut Serie A season.

There had been reports circulating today that the Rossoneri pulled out of negotiations, as they thought the price-tag was going too high.

However, Milan Channel – the club’s official television station – announced in its news segment that they are still very much in the running.

The report stated that Milan currently have 10 strikers on their books, so Adriano Galliani is working hard to whittle that down before signing another attacking figure for the right flank.

Sky Sport Italia claim that a new offer has been made to Verona worth a total of €28m.

Only €17m would be handed over the first year with the remaining €11m in instalments.

Most media sources continue to maintain Iturbe has agreed personal terms with Juventus and prefers them as he’d have the chance to play in the Champions League.

Iturbe posted a cryptic message on his Twitter account this afternoon: “Patience awaiting the final strike.”
