Juventus raise offer for Keita

Juventus are raising their offer for Keita Balde Diao to €20m plus €5m in bonuses, but Lazio are determined to hold out for €30m.

According to Il Messaggero, Keita is continuing to reject all offers from Inter, Milan, Napoli and Monaco because he only wants Juve.

In turn, the Corriere dello Sport notes the Bianconeri are increasing their offer to €20m plus another €5m in various bonuses.

However, Lazio President Claudio Lotito is a very difficult negotiator and intends to hold out for €30m, or at the very least €28m.

It’s a dangerous game, as the Senegal international’s contract expires in June 2018 and he has refused to sign a new deal.

He could leave as a free agent next summer.
