Roma confirm Vucinic-Juve meeting

Roma director Walter Sabatini confirms “a meeting is set for the next few days” with Juventus over Mirko Vucinic amid rumours of a €18m deal.

When asked by Retesport about updates on the negotiations with the Turin giants, Sabatini confessed to talks.

“A meeting is set for the next few days,” he said.

Vucinic has also been heavily linked with Premier League champions Manchester United and is valued at €20m.

The Montenegro international became Juve's primary transfer target after Villarreal took Giuseppe Rossi off the market.

Sky Sport Italia claim a deal is basically done for €18m and a four-year contract worth €3.5m per season.

Sabatini was also quizzed on reports the Giallorossi are close to Brazilian star Nilmar as a replacement.

“I will not make any comment on what the newspapers say. I never said anything about this player and I have nothing to discuss now.”
