Alberto Aquilani has hit a snag in his hopes to join Juventus on a permanent basis, after the Italian giants announced new manager Antonio Conte would take over the club.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool had agreed to a deal for £12 million for Aquilani's move - £4 million under the release clause in Aquilani's contract - to let the Italian head back to his native country.
But Conte has reportedly made it clear that he does not want to include Aquilani in his squad, and will send the 26-year-old back to Liverpool in the summer. The Juventus manager is expected to confirm his sentiments about Aquilani in a media conference.
But AC and Inter Milan are both interested in signing Aquilani, giving Liverpool hope that they might be able to offload the star and make some extra cash for the summer transfer period. And with Aquilani reportedly desperate to stay in Italy and be closer to members of the national team, one of the Milan sides could offer the playmaker a way out.
