AC Milan and Juventus interested in signing Croatia's Marko Pjaca – agent
Marko Pjaca has attracted interest from clubs across Europe, with AC Milan leading the chase according to his agent.
AC Milan and Juventus are leading the chase for Marko Pjaca, whose agent says the Rossoneri are currently favourites to sign the Croatia midfielder.
Milan’s general manager Adriano Galliani has already been spotted in Zagreb, where he has held talks with Pjaca’s club Dinamo Zagreb, but Serie A champions Juve have also made enquiries.
According to Pjaca’s agent Marko Naletilic, the Bianconeri are going to have to firm up their interest if they intend to beat their league rivals to the player’s signature.
“Milan are on Pjaca’s trail, but there are other big clubs in Europe also interested in him,” Naletilic told itasportpress.it. “I have the Rossoneri close to my heart and I have had a splendid relationship with Galliani ever since 1986, since my father concluded several deals with Milan.

“Berlusconi’s club have a slight advantage, but words get carried away by the wind and if Milan want to sign him they are going to have to show us the money, because Dinamo Zagreb are asking a lot for such a big player.
“Still, it’s certain that Pjaca will go and play at a big club. He would make a difference in Serie A, given his courage, personality and technique. He’s able to beat his man, even if he has a big physique and is 1.87 metres tall.
“Juve wanted him a while ago, but Dinamo didn’t want to sell him.”
When Juve were first interested three years ago, they could have reportedly signed Pjaca, 21, for around €2 million. He is now being valued at over €15m.
The left winger scored eight league goals in 28 appearances as Dinamo clinched the Croatian title last season and went on to feature for the national team at Euro 2016.
