Villarreal turn away from De Sciglio

Villarreal appear to have pulled out of their negotiations for Juventus full-back Mattia De Sciglio.

According to, the Spanish side turned their focus towards other transfer objectives.

Specifically, they are ready to pay €15m to Watford for Pervis Estupian instead.

Villarreal needed a replacement for Alberto Moreno, who suffered a serious knee injury in pre-season training.

De Sciglio is expected to leave Juventus this summer, although finding a buyer is proving more difficult than anticipated.

He turns 28 next month and is under contract until June 2022.
