Serie A Giants Need to Cough Up the Money for Monza Ace

Inter, Juventus, and Atalanta have been pursuing Carlos Augusto, but they’d have to shell out a hefty sum to lure him from Monza due to a precedent clause. The Brianzoli owe 40 percent of the fee from his sale to Corinthians, TuttoSport informs (via OneFootball).

The Biancorossi won’t let go of their ace for less than €15/20M. Moreover, the contenders must part ways with some players in the same position before signing a new option.

According to Goal (via Tribuna), Juventus are preparing a formal offer for Carlos Augusto. On the other hand, Inter concurred on personal terms while back, Sky relays. The Nerazzurri would accelerate if Robin Gosens departed, but it’s not imminent.

Wolfsburg showed the most interest but didn’t offer enough. They signed Rogerio from Sassuolo and are in advanced talks with Atalanta to acquire Joakim Maehle. Instead, the Old Lady already has Filip Kostic, Samuel Iling Jr., and Andrea Cambiaso on their left wing.

Our Take on Carlos Augusto

He’s a devastating weapon and would go up a level if he joined a big team that plays with 3-5-2 or something similar. While the interest is justified, the prospective suitors are already potentially set in his role. Atalanta could always add, but they already invested in Mitchell Bakker. He might head abroad if he left.
