Bologna And Panathinaikos Battle It Out For Julio Cruz

A trip to Greece may be the ticket for Cruz, but Bologna are keen on bringing him back to the Stadio Dall'Ara...
Striker Julio Cruz constantly found himself on the substitutes' bench under coach Jose Mourinho at Inter this season and is certainly on his way of the San Siro this summer.

A return to Bologna, where he played between 2000 and 2003, looked to be on the cards, but another side have tempted the Argentine veteran with a lucrative offer.

Greek side Panathinaikos have entered the race for his signature, offering him a two-year contract worth €2.5 million per season and the chance to play in the high-profile Champions League, according to Datasport.

The biggest obstacle for the Greek side would seem to be the will of the player, as he is not convinced he should leave Italy at this point in his career, but the opportunity to play in Greece has intrigued the former Feyenoord hitman.

The 34-year-old played a total of six season for Inter, notching 75 goals in all competitions.
