Juan Iturbe VeronaHellas Verona star Juan Manuel Iturbe is said to prefer a switch to AC Milan over Juventus.

The 21 year-old enjoyed an excellent season with the newly-promoted Serie A side and has attracted a host of potential suitors.

According to this morning’s addition of Tuttosport the Rossoneri would be Iturbe’s prefered destination over Serie A champions Juventus.

Milan are looking to bounce back from a terrible season with new coach Filippo Inzaghi hoping to secure the Argentinian’s services.

Owner Silvio Berlusconi is understood to be personally bankrolling this transfer with a €25 million offer already on the table.

However the Bianconeri currently have the upper hand with Iturbe close to agreeing personal terms with the Turin giants.

Both Fabio Quagliarella and Federico Peluso could be included in a deal but Hellas Verona are after the full €25 million.

Giuseppe Marotta is keen to avoid a bidding war with Milan which could also work to il Diavolo‘s advantage.
