Juan Manuel Iturbe’s agent assures “it won’t be a problem” for Verona to buy him from Porto and “Roma would be a good destination.”
The Argentine talent is on loan from Porto, but Hellas Verona have an option to buy at the end of the season and are already planning his future beyond that point.
“I want to make it clear that Iturbe has played for both Porto and Verona this term, so he cannot leave Verona for a different club in January,” pointed out agent Gustavo Mascardi on TMW.
“His experience at Porto is over and he has absolutely no intention of returning. We’ll make sure Verona will take up their option, either with the support of a big club or a financial fund. It won’t be a problem.”
Among the sides interested in Iturbe are Roma, Juventus, Fiorentina, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham.
“Roma? At the moment there is nothing concrete, but I’d be a liar if I denied Roma would be a good destination.”
