“Marco has already manifested his acceptance for Juventus as a destination,” representative Donato Di Campli told Tutto Juve.
“The Bianconeri are his first choice, even given the presence of Andrea Pirlo – a champion who is a point of reference for him.
“There is nothing new to report about the negotiations though. The two teams are talking, but nothing final has been decided.”
The 19-year-old is a playmaker who some are already calling an heir to Pirlo for club and country.
