Today could be the decisive day for the “double transfer” of Arek Milik to Roma and Edin Dzeko to Juventus.
The Polish international has still not said “yes” to joining Roma, which is required before the Giallorossi allow Dzeko to leave for Juve.
Roma and Napoli already have an agreement in place for Milik in a deal that would cost a total of €25 million.
Calciomercato.it has reported that Juventus contacted Milik’s agent to inform him they aren’t interested in purchasing the player. Milik had a deal in place with the Bianconeri while Maurizio Sarri was still at the helm — and he still hasn’t fully given up on the idea of joining.
The player has asked for time to choose the next step of his career — meanwhile, Roma will, reportedly, make contact with the player in order to explain their long term project and the role they envision for him.
The Giallorossi are ready to hand Milik a guaranteed first-choice place and large wages at €5 million per season.
In order to help accelerate the deal, the agent of Milik, David Pantak, will arrive in Italy in the next few hours.
