Bayern Munich are said to be interested in Argentine midfielder Juan Sebastian Sforza, but face a battle against a host of clubs.

The agent of Sforza has claimed that AC Milan, Juventus, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Roma, Napoli, Inter and PSG are all keen on a deal for the talented youngster.

He says that a deal for Sforza would cost €1.5m, having previously been valued at €2m by Newell.

Milan, however, are said to be in the driving seat at this moment in time, which means that Bayern will need to step up their interest if they are serious about securing a deal.

Speaking to Calcio Mercato, he said this: 

The meeting with the Rossoneri happened a couple of weeks ago, directly with Leonardo at Casa Milan. Milan is ahead of the other club because they were the first that showed interest in the boy. It would be an operation that would fully fit into the new policy because they would sign an interesting prospect which could be included in the Primavera next year..

The operation would cost 1.5 million euros. Last year Newell’s Old Boys demanded 2 million but the deal could safely be closed at 1.5 million by inserting a percentage of the future resale in favour of the Argentinians.

In the coming weeks, we will also meet Roma, Inter, Juventus and Napoli. Newell’s would like him to move to Serie A but there are also foreign teams interested like Bayern Munich, PSG or Manchester City.

The 17-year-old is clearly highly rated, but Bayern are facing stiff competition for his signature.
