Aguero in, Aquilani out for Juve

With Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero’s imminent transfer to Juventus all but done, it appears loan-signing Alberto Aquilani will be forced to head back to Liverpool.
Aguero has reportedly reached an agreement in principle with the Old Lady for a five-year contract worth €7.5 million per season, which could go up considerably with the bonuses attached.
The only detail required to complete the signing, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, is the player’s termination clause. Atletico are asking for around €40 million, with Juve willing to pay €35 million – a number reported to be acceptable by the Madrid team.
Bruno Satin, a director of the company that manages Kun, shed light on the Bianconeri’s efforts to sign the star:
“The contacts are consistent with Juventus. Sergio wants to go to a big club and it is Juventus. We know the renewal policy in place in Turin and there is no obstacle to reach agreement.”
Aguero’s arrival however, is likely to lead to the departure of Aquilani, who arrived in Turin on loan last summer. The former Roma man had a bright year with Juve, but does not figure into new Coach Antonio Conte’s plans. Aquilani put all doubts to rest about his desire to return to the Reds:
“I go back to England with the same feelings as the first time: with a big appetite. I read that I do not want to go there, but it is not true. I returned to Italy for family reasons and to regain my spot on the national team. Now I’m going calmly back to Liverpool.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
