Alberto Aquilani's agent insists Juventus “absolutely intend to buy him permanently” from Liverpool.
There have been reports the Bianconeri are looking for a discount in order to make the loan move something more stable.
“Juventus and Liverpool have already reached an agreement for the player some time ago,” agent Franco Zavaglia told Radiomercato.com.
“The Bianconeri directors absolutely intend to buy him permanently at the end of the season and have repeated it many times.
“Everything that has been said in the last few days is just hilarious. Liverpool certainly will not give a discount and the player will leave only with the agreed-upon figures.
“If Juventus do not buy Aquilani outright, then he will return to Liverpool, even if he wants to play in Italy…
“I don't think there are any Italian clubs that can have him other than Juventus.”
