Toro hit Bjarnason brakes

Birkir Bjarnason’s move from Pescara to Torino has suddenly hit the brakes due to personal terms.

The Serie B side had already announced an agreement to sell the Iceland international to Toro for €1m.

He had seemingly also worked out personal terms with the Granata, but problems have emerged.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sport Italia, Bjarnason’s agent suddenly asked for €500,000 per year rather than the previously-agreed €450,000.

Torino were irritated by the one-upmanship and are prepared to drop everything.

This would put the 27-year-old back on the market, where he is of interest to Leeds United in the English Championship.
