FIFA agent Oscar Damiani has revealed that Juventus almost signed sought-after French youngster Geoffrey Kondogbia.
The former Napoli, Milan and Bianconeri winger, who has strong links with French players, has insisted that two years ago, the Turin club almost bagged the midfielder from Lens.
“Two years Juve had Kondogbia in their hands,” he told Tuttosport. “But right at the end, they decided not to pay the €3m it would have taken to get him from Lens.
“Soon after that Sevilla came in. And then 12 months later, the Andalusian club sold him to Monaco for €16m.”
