SERIE A - Percassi on swap deal with Juventus: “There is nothing in it.”
Atalanta president Antonio Percassi has stated that there is nothing in the rumours that talk about a potential swap deal involving Dejan Kulusevski and Luis Muriel.
It was reported recently that Kulusevski is set to be placed on the transfer market by Juventus in January and Tottenham have been linked with him in the past.
Percassi spoke at Glgs Ussi Awards and he was asked about the possibility of a swap involving the Swede and Muriel. The Italian stated: “There is nothing in it, we are keeping him.”
Percassi also spoke about the club’s upcoming Champions League game against Manchester United: “We hope to be able to achieve a positive result and learn some lessons but in the return leg it will be more difficult. The matches are all important, all decisive, the important thing is not to lose them.
“Cristiano Ronaldo? He is a great player, we should ask him what he thinks when he plays against Atalanta.”
