Bidding war for Iturbe

Juan Iturbe looks set to be the subject of a bidding war this summer, according to reports in the Italian Press.

The Verona playmaker looks likely to sign permanently for the Gialloblu at the end of the season, with parent-club Porto set to accept €15m for the 20-year-old.

However, respected Sky journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed on his official website that Roma, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are all keen on the youngster.

Rudi Garcia’s men have been in pole position for a while now with sporting director Walter Sabatini thought to be in negotiations.

However, Verona backroom member Sean Sogliano was apparently in Madrid over the weekend to discuss Iturbe with Los Blancos.

Andrea Mandorlini’s outfit are thought to want between €22m-€25m for the trequartista.
