Juventus have made Luis Suarez their number one priority, helping him break away from Barcelona, as Edin Dzeko talks cool.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia, La Gazzetta dello Sport and more, Suarez is now the first choice in attack for Andrea Pirlo.
The Uruguay international is currently negotiating a termination by mutual consent with Barca, who told him in no uncertain terms that he is not part of new coach Ronald Koeman’s plans.
The latest development from Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio is that Juve could even offer Barcelona some performance-related bonuses if they let Suarez go for nothing.
That could facilitate the transfer, having practically agreed personal terms with the player and his entourage.
According to the Corriere di Torino, that would be a salary worth €14m gross per season (€10m net).
At the same time, Bianconeri interest in Roma striker Dzeko has therefore cooled, as he is not convinced by the idea of moving to Turin.
He could now either remain with the Giallorossi or join Inter, with Roma asking for €12m.
It’d be a problem for Napoli if Dzeko were to stay put, because that means they have lost their favourite to sign Arkadiusz Milik.
