Marco Verratti’s agent confirms “daily talks” with Juventus, but insists there’s no deal yet for the 19-year-old surprise Italy starlet.
The Pescara creative midfielder is nicknamed the ‘new Andrea Pirlo’ and was an unexpected addition to Cesare Prandelli’s Euro 2012 long list.
“Marco is doing great things,” agent Donato Di Campli told Radio Radio this evening.
“Prandelli’s call was a very welcome surprise, but also a pleasure for all those who are close to the player.
“Juventus are tracking him and the player appreciates the club, which is just as important as Pescara’s wishes.
“It’s not just Juventus who are interested in Verratti, but the Bianconeri are the ones who at the moment are making the most important steps.
“There is no agreement with Juve and there are no signatures, even if there are daily talks with Juventus.
“As for Roma, nobody has spoken to me and I don’t think they’ve talked to Pescara either. After the call from Italy, his price-tag is up in the air. In any case, that’s down to the club rather than me.”
