Crazy Ball – Juventus rejected a lucrative offer of £ 25 million (around Rp. 478 billion) for young Turkish defender Merih Demiral.
The 22-year-old defender is currently the attention of a number of clubs, but the Bianconeri have hastily turned down several offers that came in for him.
Report TuttoJuve mentioned, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur have tried their luck by offering 25 million Pounds or around Rp. 478 Billion for Demiral, but the Old Lady both rejected them.
Demiral was recorded to have only appeared for seven minutes in Juventus's opening match this season. However, he was not considered surplus in any way.
The players who knocked Demiral out of the starting line-up couldn't make him bounce from J-Stadium. The reason is, his rivals are Giorgio Chiellini who is 36 years old and Leonardo Bonucci who is also 33 years old.
In addition, Demiral still has a high ranking in Turin, and is unlikely to be sold this summer, even though many other clubs are eyeing him. Conversely, Demiral is likely to be played more often, even though the two veteran players above can still maintain their position.
On the other hand, Daniele Rugani is even more likely to be released by Juventus this summer. Moreover, this player has also been linked with the transfer plans of several other teams.
Transfer expert Gianluca di Marzio claims Valencia has offered to secure Rugani's signature. The club is offering a loan agreement, which includes a bonus amount that will depend on his appearance.
Disclosed JuveFC.com, Andrea Pirlo's squad does not guarantee that Rugani will be removed from the list of players. However, with his current position at Juve's fifth choice of center-back, it's no wonder they are finally willing to consider an incoming offer.
Previously it was reported, Juventus had also insisted that they did not want to let Merih Demiral go when the player was being shot by Arsenal. In fact, Juve have also rejected Manchester United's offer for the player.
The Serie A giants said they had no plans to release Demiral in the market this summer. The reason is, the Bianconeri still believe in Demiral and need his help in the future.
In July 2020, Juventus again welcomed Demiral who had started training again in full, along with his teammates. He has been out since January 12, after suffering a ligament and meniscus injury to his left knee.
