As Juventus aim to secure the signing of defender Joao Cancelo, they have offered a cash plus Marko Pjaca deal to Valencia, who remain unconvinced by that proposal.

The 24-year-old was a star performer last season in Serie A, having lit the division up during his time on loan at Inter, who have been unable to agree a move to bring him back to Milan.

As a result, La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Juventus have attempted to snare the Portugal international by offering Los Che a fee of €15 million plus the services of Pjaca, who the Italian champions value at €20m.

However, Valencia are unhappy with what they feel is an offer which is too low and although they are appreciative of the Pjaca part of the deal, given that they are fans of the player, Financial Fair Play regulations means that they would prefer cash only.

The Spanish side must bring in €40m by the end of June, which is why they are pushing so hard to sell Cancelo for a fee closer to €35m, one which Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly willing to play, although the player has rejected that switch as he would prefer to move to Turin.

Juventus were willing to insert Pjaca into the transfer as they no longer view him as unsellable, which he once was before his injury problems, and could return with a renewed offer, given the difficulty they are having in attempting to move for Matteo Darmian of Manchester United.
