Parma insist that they will not enter a transfer tug-of-war with Juventus for Brescia youngster Omar El Kaddouri.
The Gialloblu have done a deal with Brescia for the attacking midfielder, but the 21-year-old admits that he’s eyeing a switch to Juventus instead.
“I did what I could to make Brescia happy,” President Tommaso Ghirardi told Brescia Oggi. “He hasn’t yet signed for us though and I would have no problem if he preferred a move to Juve.
“I won’t try to convince him to come here. Signing for Parma should be a motive of pride, so we don’t want to force him.
“I’ve completed negotiations with Brescia and I am happy with that. We’ll see what happens.”
The transfer rumour mill today is now suggesting that Juventus and Parma could perhaps opt to co-own him.
