Juve make Asamoah offer

Udinese rejected a €12m Manchester United offer for Kwadwo Asamoah, but Juventus are now making their own bid for the midfielder.

It was reported yesterday that the Old Trafford club saw its proposal turned down for the Ghanaian talent.

He has long been linked with Juve and, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, details of the bid are emerging.

The Bianconeri would offer cash, plus co-ownership of both Michele Pazienza and Luca Marrone.

Pazienza spent the last six months on loan in Udine, while Under-21 international Marrone scored his debut Serie A goal in the last game of the season against Atalanta.

However, Juventus would want to maintain an option to buy back Marrone in future.
