Juventus striker David Trezeguet could be on his way to Barcelona after he confirmed that he would leave the club unless they are prepared to pay him more.
The 25-year-old, who joined Juventus in the summer of 2000, is believed to be unhappy with his current deal which reportedly earns him 1.3m euros and wants financial parity with the likes of team-mates Alessandro Del Piero and Pavel Nedved.
“I am one of the strikers of international level with the lowest wage,” he told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“At Juventus they told me to prove what I was worth and then we would talk.
“I was the highest goalscorer in Serie A last season with 24 goals but we have not spoken. If this does not happen we will go our own way.”
According to reports in the Spanish press, the forward’s representatives are due to meet with Barcelona directors next week in an attempt to seal a deal.
