He had agreed terms with us too but we never proceeded. It doesn't mean that much but Juventus tends to be more serious about him (we opted for Lukaku instead after wasting 2 months negotiating the color of the sky). And they have the money to spend.

Serb clan in gobbi land isn't the best situation for us.

Nah. Hate Lotito as much as you want (i hate him too) but the only thing he cares about is money. There's no bending over to Juve from Lotito. There's a reason Lichtsteiner is the only Lazio player who has joined Juventus in the last 15 years.

Meanwhile, Fiorentina, the so-called 'Rube hater", keeps giving their best players to Rube for ridiculous price.
Difference is Commisso and their directors aren't ruthless as Lotito. Lotito would probably threaten to keep SMS out of the pitch for the whole season if he doesn't accept transfer abroad (or sign extension).

Fiorentina owner Rocco is a self-declared Juventus fan. What were you expecting?

It`s the Viola fans that are against Juventus, living quite an unfortunate period.

Lazio will probably never get their asking price for SMS. I have always thought he is overhyped and nowhere near that price-tag. He's surely a quality player, but a 100 million player doesn't exist in Lazio. Lotito might end up with a bunch of potatoes if he insists on getting that crazy amount of money for SMS. I don't think it will end up the same situation, but Cairo was asking something similar for Belotti but we know how that situation ended.

Milan have reportedly fully agreed a deal with Marco Sportiello ahead of the expiration of his Atalanta contract in the summer
The 30-year-old Italian goalkeeper has been with la Dea’s first team since June 2012 and is a product of their youth system. He has featured semi-regularly this season under Gian Piero Gasperini and impressed when given the chance, showing his utility as a reliable backup option.

As reported by Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com, Milan have agreed a contract with Sportiello and will sign him on a free transfer next summer, when his current deal with Atalanta expires.
Thought you`re only supposed to agree with a player 6 months before his contract expires 😅

Former Roma and Torino director Gianluca Petrachi revealed that he was close to selling Belotti to Milan for €55m:
“It happened in the summer of 2018, I had sold Belotti to Milan for €55m, plus €3m add-ons and booked Sampdoria‘s Duvan Zapata for €18m. The lad waited for a month and a half, but in the end the chief [Torino President Urbano Cairo] said no.”
Cairo should have sold Belotti for that kind of money.

PROSECUTOR REQUESTS FOUR-YEAR JAIL TERM FOR MONZA DEFENDER IZZO OVER MAFIA LINKS
According to Il Fatto Quotidiano, the District Prosecutor For Mafia Investigation requested a four-year jail term for Monza defender Armando Izzo over suspected links with Mafia families.

Izzo is among those involved in a trial for alleged match-fixing dating back to when he was 18 years old and was playing for Avellino.

According to Il Fatto Quotidiano and Gazzetta, Prosecutor Maurizio De Marco requested four years and 10 months in jail for the Italian defender for alleged external support of Mafia families.

The Prosecutor also requested an 18-month jail term for Salvatore Russo and Umberto Accurso, who are accused of sports fraud.

Back in 2017, Izzo was banned for 18 months for match-fixing in a sporting trial and his former club Avellino were deducted three points. The ban for Izzo was then reduced to six months.

Izzo, 30, is a product of Napoli academy and played for two and a half years at Avellino, in Italy’s third division and Serie B.

He spent four years at Genoa and four more at Torino, joining Monza on loan last summer.

He has made eight competitive appearances this season. Izzo made his senior Italy debut in March 2019 and has three international caps to his name.
Izzo has the chance to transfer from Serie A directly to jail.

Glad we never signed this guy!
