Milan’s Sporting Director denies negotiations with Juventus over the full back
Adriano Galliani denies rumours of a negotiation with Juventus over 24 year old full back Mattia De Sciglio: “No, we have never sat down with Juventus to discuss De Sciglio. He’s a Milan player and has a contract until June 2018”, as heard on today’s Tutti Convocati on Radio 24
We previously reported that Juventus has started to evaluate the possibility of the full back in Turin by meeting with his agent recently.
Rumours about Juve’s interest in De Sciglio are fueled by Milan’s reticence to discuss a contract renewal with his agent.
This may simply be a classic tactic employed by De Sciglio’s agent in order to instill urgency in Milan’s brass to renew (and increase his client’s wages). Italian Football Daily will continue to monitor, and provide updates.
De Sciglio has played 18 games this season for Milan (16 in Serie A, 1 in Coppa Italia and 1 in the Supercoppa Italiana), with an above average rating of 6.91 (via whoscored.com).
