It seems Gaetano D'Agostino will definitely not join Juventus. The Udinese midfielder, considered one of the most talented playmakers in Serie A, is likely to stay put as Juventus are unwilling to give into the Friulani's demands for the player.
The difference between Juve's offer and Udinese's price is of about €7 million, making it very difficult to reach an agreement.
Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli confirmed that the Italian
international is no longer one of the club's primary objectives.
"D'Agostino? We respect Udinese, but the negotiations have frozen," he told SkySport24. "We are now looking at other players."
So far the Bianconeri have signed playmaker Diego from Werder Bremen and Fabio Cannavaro, who made his return to Turin after three years at Real Madrid.
Other transfer targets for Juventus are said to be Lyon full-back Fabio Grosso and Lazio midfielder Cristian Ledesma.
