Parma are pessimistic that they’ll be able to sign Juventus striker Amauri again this summer.
The Brazilian joined the club on loan in January and his seven goals helped the side survive the drop.
With Juve putting the player up for sale, the Tardini outfit are understandably keen to bring him back on a permanent basis.
However, the Old Lady’s €7m valuation and the forward’s wage demands are proving problematic.
“Amauri is an exceptional player,” Gialloblu sporting director Pietro Leonardi commented. “He’ll guarantee any side their top-flight status.
“Our move went well for him in January, but that is not to say that the same thing will happen now.
“Nevertheless, there is still a month to go in the transfer market. Let’s see what happens.”
