Preziosi denies Juve-Destro talks

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi has denied that Juventus are holding up Mattia Destro’s move to Roma.

Destro is understood to have held talks with both the Giallorossi and the Bianconeri, over a possible transfer away from Siena and Genoa, the two sides that currently co-own him.

However, whilst reports this morning suggest that Destro is stalling on the transfer to Rome because of a more enticing offer from Turin, Preziosi has made clear the deal in place.

“There is an agreement made with our club - Roma asked for Destro when we had not even redeemed him from Siena and we reached an agreement with them,” the Grifone owner told Sky Sport 24.

“Juve has not asked us anything, whilst Inter fell to one side. Again, I have a commitment to give him to Roma, there is no possibility to make a million more from this deal.

“We have an agreement that is good for both us and Siena.”
