Defensor President Reveals Uruguay Talent’s Italian Destination

Inter were said to be in the lead for the signature of Alan Matturro from Uruguayan side Defensor Sporting, but club president Albero Ward has revealed the surprising contender to have reportedly beaten the Nerazzurri to striking a deal.

Speaking to AM 970 Universal radio station following Sporting’s inaugural victory in the Copa AUF Uruguay, Ward disclosed Matturro’s next destination.

“It’s practically closed with Genoa,” the club executive answered when quizzed about the 18-year-old defender’s next destination.

The highly-rated defender, who holds an Italian passport, is now reportedly one step away from taking the first big step in his playing career by joining the Ligurians, for whom he has already expressed his liking.

The details of the contract offered are not definite but according to Gianluca di Marzio (via FCInterNews), €3M plus bonuses and a 20% on a future resale has been proposed to the Uruguayan outfit.

Matturro was eyed heavily by Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio and also Dutch heavyweights Ajax, but it seems like he will be heading to Genoa for his near future.
