Doubts over Aquilani future

The future of Italian international Alberto Aquilani still shows no sign of being sorted, with it unsure that either Juventus or AC Milan will sign the midfielder permanently.

Aquilani spent a season-long loan at Juventus from Liverpool, scoring twice in 33 league appearances.

But as part of the deal, Juventus must cough up around £14million to seal a switch for the former Roma player.

Alternatively, he could return to Liverpool – a door which hasn’t been shut by Reds boss Kenny Dalglish.

Aquilani’s agent, Franco Zavaglia, told Gazzetta dello Sport on rumours linking the 26-year-old with a move to AC Milan, “I can say that I am not aware of any interest from AC Milan. They are just rumours and we have had no contact with Milan.

“Juve have asked us for a few days to reflect and in the meantime, we are looking at the options in Italy and abroad.

“I don’t think the problem has to do with the buy-out clause but rather that they (Juventus) are looking for someone whose characteristics are more defensive.

“We will see what happens.

“Whatever happens, Alberto is not left in the middle of the road as he still has three years left of his contract with Liverpool.”
