Atalanta, no discounts for Koopmeiners. Juventus notified, starting from 70 million

Transfer yes, transfer no. A dilemma, perhaps a real challenge. But the victory in the Europa League and the consequent qualification for the next Champions League changed the cards on the table. If the 48 million euros advanced by Napoli last season had already been rejected, to sell Teun Koopmeimers Atalanta is now shooting high, very high indeed: 70 million euros or nothing, a figure that makes it clear how much a team has strengthened which at the moment has no need to give up.

The Dutchman’s season surpassed the first in Italy with the Nerazzurri shirt. Twelve goals in Serie A in 33 matches, three in the Italian Cup: a record for a player often used in the midfield two, sometimes diverted to the right to form the trident used by Gasp on several occasions. Numbers that continue to increase the value of a player who arrived in Bergamo for 17 million, yet another intuition of a scouting network that continues to churn out talent.

Only big offers
Juventus is therefore warned. No 40 million euros plus compensation, to convince the Goddess heavy offers will be needed which could only come from England: Arsenal is looking for an attacking midfielder, United is aiming for a revolution, but it will not be easy to negotiate with a team certainly strengthened by the results in Europe.
