Juve consider Abate swoop

Juventus could swoop for Milan right-back Ignazio Abate if he doesn’t renew his contract.

The 27-year-old has been at San Siro for five years, but his current deal expires in June 2015.

If he doesn’t reach an agreement to renew, then the Rossoneri will sell in order to avoid losing him as a free agent.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus are keeping a close eye on the situation and could make an offer for Abate.

He would be reunited with another former Milan man, Andrea Pirlo.

Abate managed only 19 Serie A appearances this season, scoring one goal, and is a versatile figure who can play right-back, right wing or the right side of midfield.
