Juve hit brakes in Elia deal

Juventus' proposed move for Eljero Elia of Hamburg has stalled, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 24-year-old is seen as a possible solution to the left-midfield void in boss Antonio Conte's 4-4-2.

Talks between both clubs have taken place and a financial agreement, thought to be of around €10m, was believed to have been agreed in principle.

Nevertheless, it is being claimed that reaching a compromise over personal terms has become the biggest problem.

Elia, according to reports, wants two times as much in terms of a salary from what Juve are currently offering him.

The Old Lady could now switch their attention to Fiorentina and Peru international Juan Manuel Vargas instead.
