OM: Milik not yet set on his future, but Juve is following him closely
A departure from Arkadiusz Milik to Juventus cannot be ruled out at the end of the transfer window, but no agreement has yet been reached between the two clubs. OM and the Old Lady are in contact about the Polish striker but the case has not seen any significant progress in the past 48 hours.
As for the player, we promised before the last match against Nantes that Milik would remain focused on OM, that he feels good in Marseille and that he has a good relationship with Igor Tudor. The Croatian coach left Milik on the bench against Nantes, which may be a first sign of a desire to do without the Pole in the future.
According to our information, Milik will only agree to leave Marseille if a club playing in the Champions League does not show up, and if possible in a championship he knows, to avoid acclimatization problems while the World Cup approach. Juve and Italy obviously have the profile, and the situation could change in the coming days, especially as the Memphis Depay track at the Bianconeri seems to be cooling. Today Juve have a Serie A game, at Sampdoria. The week will probably be decisive for Milik’s future, but at this time nothing has been decided yet.
