Italian Club JUVENTUS really puts their money where their mouth is, something admirable in the rumour & gossip Football World. The Italian Football Club announced weeks back that ATLETICO DE MADRID Argentine forward SERGIO AGUERO was their "Top Priority" for the new upcoming season & they are not taking a NO for an answer. According to Italian Sports paper "La Gazzetta dello Sport" today Juventus will raise their initial offer of 35M€ to 40M€ for the Atletico player. They even go further & insinuate that there is an initial agreement with the player for 7.5M€/season net + bonuses & a 5 year contract. This last piece of news will need to be verified as I am not too sure that it is the case.
Atletico de Madrid may accept the offer as they are willing to sell to any Club with a good offer other than Real Madrid. However, the final word is with the player & local press information makes everybody believe that Sergio Aguero wishes to play at Real Madrid.
Some observers are speculating that Aguero wrongly anticipated himself in declaring that he wished to leave Atletico &/or was badly advised by his close circle to make the initial move without a firm "in the hand" agreement from Real Madrid. The player is currently perplexed & frustrated in attempting to understand why REAL MADRID has not yet made their move & put forward a genuine offer.
The player is now in a very sticky situation:
- he accepts the Juventus offer, an option never in his plans & with a team that will not be playing in European competition next season
- he waits for the Real Madrid move & offer , which may never come due to the blacklash from Atletico fans & possible broken relations with the Atletico Club
- puts his head in between his tail & returns to Atletico de Madrid to stay another season
