Juventus to bid on Federico Bernardeschi
Fiorentina star Federico Bernardeschi is one of the most sought-after players in Europe and Serie A giants Juventus are one of the clubs interested in signing the Argentine and are to make an opening bid of €40 million, according to Calciomercato. However, it believed that the attacking midfielder is also on the radars of both Inter and Chelsea. The 23-year-old is having a stellar season at La Viola, having amassed 13 goals and 5 assists in 25 appearances in all competitions so far.
Calciomercato pundit Nicola Balice has suggested that Bernardeschi would prefer a move to Juventus over Inter or outside of Italy. The Old Lady are ready to offer him a €4 million-a-year – twice of what he earns at Fiorentina.
The player has stalled on contract negotiations and the club wants to include a €100 million release clause in his new contract. However, Bernardeschi wants that number to be in the €60-70 million region. It will be interesting to see at which club the Argentine ends up in the summer,
