Man City made Giovinco enquiry

Manchester City have made enquires about Parma and Juventus talent Sebastian Giovinco, it has been confirmed.

Claudio Pasqualin, who looks after the Italian forward along with fellow agent Andrea D’Amico, made the claim to Sky Sport Italia on Thursday.

Giovinco’s future is a hot topic of debate after his 15 Serie A goals this term caught the attention of some of Europe’s top clubs.

“Giovinco has deserved all of the praise he has received for a marvellous season,” Pasqualin commented.

“Juve and Parma will firstly have to resolve his co-ownership arrangement, but it’s no secret that Barcelona have sent scouts to watch him play.

“Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid? One thing is to be interested in a player, it’s another to start talks.

“Nevertheless, they are not the only two sides to have requested information, Manchester City have as well.”

Giovinco is co-owned between Parma and Juventus and there are suggestions that the Italian champions may want him back in Turin at the desire of boss Antonio Conte.

“I still haven’t spoken to Conte and neither has D’Amico,” Pasqualin added. “Once we have then we’ll be able to give you an answer on that possibility.”

Parma chief Tommaso Ghirardi recently claimed that Giovinco was worth €40m on the transfer market.
