Report: Milan abandon Iturbe pursuit

Reports coming out of Italy are that Milan have abandoned their pursuit of Verona attacking midfielder Juan Iturbe.

Both Rossoneri and Juventus officials are said to have met with the player’s representatives in recent days for talks over a potential switch to their respective clubs.

However, the Scaligeri’s asking price for the Argentine is reported to be around €25m, a fee that respected journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports is too much for the San Siro outfit.

With Verona refusing to consider offers below that figure, it has been decided that Milan will take their interest in the 21-year-old no further, meaning the path now seems clear for Juve to land their target.
