“Ajax are a good draw. Physically Juve can destroy them,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Report: Inter want Gomes

Inter are reportedly ready to prise Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes away from Everton.

Sport claims while Everton plan to spend €25m to make their loan deal for Gomes permanent, that not stopped Inter from lunging in for the Portugal international.

The newspaper explains the Nerazzurri have told his camp to take their time before committing to the Toffees.

That would be because the Beneamata are in the mix for the Champions League qualification and only after the campaign is over will they know how much they can spend this summer.

Milan lost to Ajax in the 1995 Champions League Final, but the Bianconeri lifted the trophy a year later, beating the Dutch side on penalties. That remains their last conquest in the competition.
