Former youngster looks set for a transfer back to the club where it all started…
According to Goal Italy, Alessandro Matri could be on his way out of Juventus in the summer transfer window, with Milan showing an interest in signing the attacker.
The Rossoneri are keen to add another target man to their squad ahead of the 2012-13 campaign after letting Maxi Lopez return to Catania, and head coach Massimiliano Allegri sees the 27-year-old Matri as a good addition to his attacking options.
Allegri previously worked with Matri at Cagliari from 2008 and 2010, and would relish the prospect of taking the striker under his wing again.
Matri is a product of the Milan youth academy, but never managed to secure regular first-team action with the San Siro club. He eventually ended up at Cagliari after a number of loan spells, before joining Juve in January 2011.
The forward has since developed into an important first-team member with the Bianconeri, but they are believed to be ready to cash in on the player this summer as they look to bring in Napoli’s Edinson Cavani.
However, the Turin club’s asking price of €16 million could prove to be a problem for Milan, who lack the financial resources to make any big-money signings.
