Juventus have been active both on and off the pitch and have set their sights on a few Monaco players.
During Wednesday’s 3-0 Coppa Italia victory over Inter Milan, Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev was present at Juventus Stadium. Vasilyev met with Juve leaders who have once again displayed their interest in 21-year-old Portuguese attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva. As much as Juve had shown interest, however, it seems as if the potential move will have to wait until June. Monaco has expressed how important Silva is to the team this season and Juve must also show the door to a few players before they can acquire Silva. This does not look to be something that can be done with merely a few days left in the market, however, there is still hope.
While the focus was mostly on Bernardo Silva, reports say the meeting took a turn when Juve asked about teammate, and fellow countryman, 29-year-old Portuguese centeral midfielder Joao Moutinho. Moutinho seems to be a more feasible acquisition for Juve come June, however, negotiations to bring either player to Juve during this winter market are still ongoing.
