Genoa Chief Enrico Preziosi: Juventus Want Diego Milito

The toy magnate has revealed the Bianconeri are after ‘El Principe’. He also confirmed the Grifoni’s interest in Atalanta star Floccari.

Genoa president Enrico Preziosi has reiterated that it will be difficult to hold on to Argentine hitman Diego Milito this summer and claimed that Inter are not the only side willing to offer big bucks to secure his services.

“There is nothing at the moment,” Preziosi told La Gazzetta dello Sport when asked about rumours that the Italian champions have agreed terms with the Ligurians.

“Besides, the player also interests Juventus. Diego is a wonderful lad and a champion. It is too early to say what he will do.

“We have an excellent relationship with Juve and several deals are in the pipeline. We will meet very soon to discuss the situation of [Raffaele] Palladino and [Domenico] Criscito.”

The striker is co-owned by the two clubs, while the defender has been on loan at the Stadio Marassi since January 2008.

But Genoa are also ready to challenge Juve for the signature of Atalanta revelation Sergio Floccari, who has recently turned down a move to Napoli.

“As I said, I like Floccari very much,” admitted Preziosi.

“I never said I had bought him, I only expressed interest in a very good player. Nothing will be set in stone until the parties come to an agreement and the contracts are signed.”
