Report: Turkey star wants to leave amid Milan, Man Utd links; €30m asking price set

By Oliver Fisher -

Juventus defender Merih Demiral wishes to leave Juventus amid links with Milan and three Premier League clubs, a report claims.

We recently reported via our mercato expert Vito Angele that Milan had opened talks with Juve over a deal for Demiral given the injury to Leo Duarte.

An official club statement on Thursday evening confirmed that that Duarte underwent an operation at the Alfredson Tendon Clinic in Umeå to ‘treat a fracture to the calcaneus at the point where it meets the left achilles tendon’.

According to Bleacher Report’s Dean Jones though, the Rossoneri are not alone in their interest. Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United are three clubs who are sniffing around, with the Bianconeri asking for €30m to let him leave.

Demiral has struggled for game time, and Jones claims that the Turkey international is ‘keen’ to leave Juventus in search of opportunities elsewhere, but that the Turin club do not want to lose him.
