Kondogbia: 'Juve want me'

Lens midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia has confirmed he is in negotiations with Juventus. “It’s true, they want me.”

The 19-year-old has played for France at every level from Under-16 up to Under-19 and is ready for a Serie A adventure.

“It’s true, Juventus want me,” he told Tuttosport newspaper after rumours of a €6m deal.

“Nothing has been concluded yet, but they have been following me for a long time.

“It is a strange sensation when you are of interest to such a big club, as Juventus are among the top 10 in Europe.

“What counts for me now is to improve and grow as a player. I will discuss the matter with Lens to understand their intentions and then talk it over with my family.”
