Verona to lose Iturbe and Romulo

Verona Coach Andrea Mandorlini accepts he will lose Juan Iturbe and Romulo, but hints at a Fabio Quagliarella deal with Juventus.

Hellas were one of the surprise packages of Serie A this season and activated their option to buy Iturbe outright from Porto, but now he’s at the centre of a €25m bidding war between Juventus, Roma and Milan.

“I don’t know where Iturbe will go, but I wish him all the best,” Coach Mandorlini told Sky Sport Italia.

“He has grown so much over the past year. He can play for any club. Romulo also did well with us.

“We are losing these players, but want to do well next season and repeat the excellent results of this campaign.”

It is reported Juventus are offering striker Quagliarella as part of their deal for Iturbe, so Mandorlini was asked about the Italy forward.

“He is a player who has done very well in his career, but I don’t know whether he’s suited to Verona’s finances. In technical terms he is a strong player who proved his worth over the years.”
