Juventus Offer Schalke €8 Million For Rafinha

rafinha On Tuesday, Il Corriere dello Sport reported that Juventus had ended their chase for Schalke defender Rafinha due to the German side’s hefty asking price. The Turin based outfit had reportedly made Lyon’s Fabio Grosso their primary target instead.

Nevertheless, German newspaper Bild now claims that Juventus have not stepped away from the Brazilian right-back, as they have supposedly made an €8 million offer for Rafinha. The Gelsenkirchen outfit have reportedly set an €11 million asking price for the defender.

The highly rated full-back has already stated his desire to move on a number of times and Schalke could very well decide to cash in on Rafinha if Juventus increase their initial offer.

Ciro Ferrara’s side are not the only interested team though. AC Milan are also being linked with a move for Rafinha, but they need to offload Massimo Oddo before making a move for the 23-year-old Brazilian.
