TS: Juve ready to battle Milan for Real Madrid defender

By Oliver Fisher -

Juventus may be ready to rival AC Milan for the signing of a Real Madrid defender as an alternative to Thiago Silva.

The man in question is 33-year-old centre-back Pepe, who will become a free agent in the summer and is attracting interest from the Rossoneri according to Tuttosport.

Both Italian clubs have been linked with moves for Thiago Silva of PSG, however any deal may become complicated as the player is not likely to be available for free.


This is due to the fact he has a clause in his contract which means an automatic one-year extension will be triggered in the highly likely event Les Parisiens qualify for the Champions League.
