According to the latest report from Tutto Mercato Web, there’s now been ‘direct contact’ between the boards of each club.
The website says that they’ve learned from England that the negotiation is ‘going on’ and next week there’ll be new talks to find common ground.
Tutto Mercato Web says Martial is ‘ready to say yes’ to a move to Juventus, as he’s ‘close’ to an agreement with them both on a technical as in an economic level.
Now regarding the deal between clubs, it’s said that Manchester United are asking for ‘an important onerous loan’ and Juventus are still to match that. It’s claimed that the Old Lady accepted to pay his full salary, but now they try to lower the fee.
