Atleti to beat Juve for Iturbe?

Atletico Madrid have emerged as new favourites to sign Juan Iturbe, with reports that the Spanish side are set to outbid Juventus.

The Bianconeri had been seen as almost on the verge of signing the Verona playmaker, but Corriere di Verona believe that the Spanish side are now firmly in contention.

Coach Diego Simeone sees the Argentine as ideal for his new attacking line-up, as the champions look to refresh following the departure of Diego Costa.

The paper claims that the Vicente Calderon outfit are prepared to offer €25m for Iturbe, and send Leo Baatistao to Andrea Mandorlini’s men.

Juve are thought to be willing to only part with €23m.
