Juve beat Inter for Pereira
Football Italia1 Day Ago
Juventus and Inter race for three youngsters: Corinthians' Matheus Pereira, Rosario Central's Giovani Lo Celso, and Sampdoria's Federico Bonazzoli.
It is believed the Bianconeri have an advantage to reach the former of these players. Pereira, a 19-year-old trequartista, has already accepted the Old Lady's offer of €2m and bonuses, according to Tuttosport.
Inter also had an interest in the player but failed to beat Juventus in the race. There is still hope for them however as Corinthians asked for a higher price of €3m and are waiting for someone to raise the bid.
Juventus are attempting to repeat their operation with Lo Celso, and they have already offered €6m plus bonuses. This is the closest that Rosario Central has come to their request of €10m, but Inter, alongside Porto, Roma, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, are believed to be interested as well.
The player's entourage is allegedly happy with a move to Juventus, even though this would imply a loan to Sassuolo.
Finally there is Bonazzoli, who is currently loaned to Serie B side Virtus Lanciano. Inter have a right to buy him back from Sampdoria at €7.5m, but they appear not to be greatly interested.
Juventus had a chance to sign the player in January, but after making an initialy offer of €6m all negotiations have been deferred to the summer. If Inter decide not to exercise their transfer right, then Bonazzoli may well join the Bianconeri
