JUVENTUS wanted Clarence Seedorf to come with Andrea Pirlo, it emerges.
Andrea Pirlo left Milan this summer on a Bosman transfer to join Juventus and the Bianconeri legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon said it was the deal of the century, as Juve got a high-profile player at no cost.
However, it now appears that Juve tried to get another Milan player whose contract was due to expire in the summer as according to the Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, Juve wanted to get Clarence Seedorf.
The Dutchman, unlike Pirlo, was convinced by Milan CEO Adriano Galliani to sign a one-year extension. The former Brescia man on the other hand, wanted a contract for at least two years, but Galliani wasn’t ready to give him this guarantee as Milan’s policy for 30+ players is a renewal for only one more year.
Milan enjoy the presence of Seedorf who got off on the right foot this season and already scored a goal.
