Udinese: 'Juve deal not done, but...'

Udinese have “categorically” denied a deal with Juventus for Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah, but confirmed “advanced negotiations.”

Tuttosport splashed the report this evening that an agreement to sign both players in co-ownership deals had already been decided.

“I can categorically deny the claim this affair can be considered a done deal,” Udinese director of sport Fabrizio Larini told TMW.

“I won’t deny there are some advanced negotiations and that Juventus are very interested in the two players, but I can rule out the idea this operation is concluded, especially as both of them are currently on the other side of the world.

“The problem is not the formula of sales, especially as if we were to reach an agreement, then it would be for a permanent sale.”
