What now for Estigarribia?

Marcelo Estigarribia is a wanted man given that Juventus have so far opted against signing him outright.

The Paraguayan international joined the Old Lady on loan in the summer, from Deportivo Maldonado, after impressing at the Copa America.

In 18 games across Serie A and the Coppa Italia, the 24-year-old left-sided player scored one goal, but it’s unclear what Juventus want to do with him.

“The boy is very tied to Juventus and it is certainly a destination that he would like,” agent Giuseppe Addamiano told TMW.

“But he has other options. River Plate have wanted him for over a year and they know him well – they are moving strongly for him.

“There are other possibilities as well. There is a French club, that will be playing in the Champions League, who are interested and there has been a concrete offer from Spain.”

Estigarribia is a left-sided wide player who will be 25 in September.
