Turkey international star Merih Demiral will not leave Juventus this summer despite rumors that AC Milan are set to make a final bid of around €35m.
Demiral’s representatives informed Turkish-Football that they have not been contacted regarding an offer and that the 22-year-old has no intention of leaving Juventus.
The 1.92m tall defender is happy at the Bianconeri and wants to fight for his place in the team.
Demiral did receive offers following the arrival of Matthijs De Ligt but Juventus rejected the bids and made it clear that they want the young center-back to remain this summer.
The latest rumors centre around a report TRT Spor that AC Milan have not given up hope of signing Demiral and will make a final bid worth €35m.
Similar reports in Italy have also surfaced regarding the Rossoneri plotting a late swoop for the young defender.
Demiral was named in the matchday squad in Juventus’ opening Serie A game of the season against Parma.
Juve won the match 1-0 at the Ennio Tardini Stadium but Demiral did not make an appearance over the course of the 90 minutes.
