Juve negotiate over Porto's Rolando

Juventus are said to be in advanced talks with Porto for defender Rolando, who’d return to Serie A after Inter.

The centre-back is seen as a good temporary replacement for Andrea Barzagli, who continues to undergo treatment for an on-going Achilles tendon problem.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Juve are already in negotiations with Porto for the centre-back.

The Portuguese club values Rolando at €1m for the six-month loan plus another €6m to make the move permanent at the end of the season.

However, Juve consider those demands to be excessive and would like to offer no more than €500,000 for the loan with an option to buy for €4m.
