BERLIN: The agent of Bayern Munich defender Robert Kovac, Jurgen Milewski, has confirmed that Italian giants Juventus are interested in poaching the Croatian international defender.
Juventus were impressed by Kovac, 30, during the two meetings with Bayern in the Champions League group phase and are prepared to put together a lucrative financial package with the player out of contract at the end of the season.
“There is an offer from Juventus on the table,” Milewski told Bild am Sonntag.
Bayern have offered Kovac a two-year extension at the Olympic Stadium but are unwilling to match his salary demands as they continue to cut the wage bill throughout the club. – AFP
