Juventus are ready to make a contract offer to Ivan Perisic as his contract extension talks with Inter drag on with possible difficulties ahead.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that finding an agreement with the Nerazzurri could be difficult for the 33-year-old, and that the Bianconeri are thinking about signing him on a free transfer.
The Nerazzurri are ready to offer Perisic a one-year deal worth €5 million net per season including add-ons, whilst the player and his representatives are firm in their demand of €6 million net per season including add-ons.
There will be further talks to try and reach an agreement, but the distance between the parties is significant and he could depart in the summer.
No serious offers have yet come in for the Croat, with the Gazzetta reporting that neither Juventus nor Chelsea have come forward, but Bianconeri coach Max Allegri is an admirer and would push for Perisic’s signing.
Meanwhile, Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport report in today’s print edition that PSG’s Angel Di Maria is the favourite for the Bianconeri to sign in a wide position but that they could move for Perisic as an alternative.
