Aquilani’s Anfield return another step closer

The likelihood of Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani returning to Liverpool is becoming more and more likely by the day after it was revealed Juventus made a €39.5million (£33.5m) loss in the first half of the 2010/11 season.

Aquilani was sent out on loan to the Turin based club by former Reds boss Roy Hodgson last summer, with Juventus given the option to buy him for around £14million this coming summer.

But Juventus’ finances are looking in bad shape, and the team themselves are only seventh in Serie A with 11 games to go.

Revenue for the club was down 29% from the year before, with a “significant loss” predicted for the rest of the campaign.

This is likely to ensure they don’t have the resources to sign Aquilani on a permanent deal, which could pave the way for his return to Merseyside

As we reported last week Juventus are only willing to offer £5million for the Italian international.

Aquilani struggled with injury and fitness during his first season at Liverpool, following an £18million move from Roma.
