thumbnail Hello,

The Bianconeri are planning to land Milito before Inter move in to snap him up...

Another Derby d'Italia is on the horizon, but it will not be for points as Juventus prepare to challenge Inter for Genoa ace Diego Milito.

The Bianconeri have joined the race to sign the prolific hitman, who is currently being monitored by the champions. Tuttosport claims Juventus are trying to muscle their way in to find a way of landing Milito before their bitter rivals from Milan. The Turin-based paper suggests Juve will have priority because of their good relationship with Genoa following the deals for Raffaele Palladino and Domenico Criscito.

The report implies Milito's agent, Fernando Hidalgo, will meet Bianconeri directors at Vinovo next week, which is likely to put some pressure on Inter. Juve are keen on the Argentinean hitman following his good form in the port city. In addition, David Trezeguet's future at the club is looking uncertain according to voices emanating from Vinovo and Milito could be seen as the ideal replacement.

Signing Milito will be less than straight-forward for both clubs as Rossoblu president Enrico Preziosi has warned that he will only be willing to play a high stakes game for his man.
