Agent: ‘De Sciglio was close to Juventus. Renewal? Let’s see…’

By Oliver Fisher -

Mattia de Sciglio’s agent confirmed today that Juventus came very close indeed to snagging him last summer.

“Everyone knows that he was very close to Juventus in the past,” Donato Orgnoni told audiences at Tuttosport’s Agents Forum.

The full-back, who played very well for Italy at Euro 2016, is almost up for renewal, allowing Orgnoni to issue a bit of a warning to the Rossoneri.

“He has a deal expiring in 2018 and we’re not talking about a renewal with AC Milan. They have other priorities, let’s see how the new owners behave.”

De Sciglio, 23, has played 90 Serie A games with Milan, but never scored a league goal.
