A Team Is Interested In Simon Kjaer, But Not Juventus - Palermo's Walter Sabatini

Palermo director Walter Sabatini has revealed a big team is keen on Danish defender Simon Kjaer, just hours after president Maurizio Zamparini declared he is not for sale.

On Wednesday Turin-based publication Tuttosport claimed Juventus were ready to swoop for the highly-rated youngster, but those reports were denied by the club. However, Sabatini claims there is a team that wants his man, but stayed quiet on their identity.

"Around a month ago we received a proposition for Kjaer from an important Italian side who wear striped shirts," Sabatini told Stadionews.it.

"They wanted to negotiate his release clause, but in the end it remained how it was. The player is doing really well and so sooner or later we will receive a €12 million offer.

"The team in question wear striped shirts, but they are not Juventus."

Speculation in the Italian media suggests Milan were the team that made the move, though the club have not confirmed those reports.
