“We want to spend wisely. We have clear ideas and it’s now just a matter of timing,” he told Tuttopsort.

“We are ready to spend a large part of our budget on one player, even if other factors then have to be taken into consideration – like salaries.

“Aguero, for example, benefits from tax breaks in with Atletico Madrid that he wouldn’t get in .

“If someone poaches Aguero from us then it will only be because of an economical offer that we are in no position to match.”

“Alexis Sanchez would fit in well with the football of Coach Antonio Conte, as Aguero would. The others a little less.

“Vucinic is someone we like and his arrival wouldn’t block that of a top player. However, we haven’t spoken to Roma yet – we have to trim our squad first.

“His [] future was a point of analysis. We want to keep him, but things can change quickly in football.”
