Juventus have Tiago problem

Juventus have an extra transfer problem to deal with, as Atletico Madrid are not going to take up their option on Tiago Mendes.

The Portuguese midfielder was a costly flop in Turin and sent out on loan to La Liga in January 2010.

However, it is reported in Marca that Atletico do not want to take up their option to make the move permanent.

As the 29-year-old still has one season left to run on his contract, he would therefore return to Juventus.

It is a double blow, as the Bianconeri must find another club for him and cannot use Tiago as part-exchange in an offer for Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero.
