Argentina’s former Manchester United and Chelsea midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron could be set for a move to Greek club Panathinaikos, according to his father.
In an interview with Greek sports newspaper Sportime, Juan Ramon Veron, who played for the club in the 1970s, said his son, may follow in his footsteps.
“We do not have an official offer in our hands but I am in talks with Panathinaikos’s management and we are making great progress,” he said.
“Panathinaikos offered to work with us a few days ago. We had a phone conversation with Panathinaikos’s technical director and we are thinking about the offer very seriously.
“Sebastian and I, we are going to contemplate this offer very carefully and if we decide to move on we will both talk to the club for a possible move.”
Veron is back home in Argentina playing for Estudiantes but his father said the midfielder’s contract expires in June.
“There is no issue with that. He can play in Greece anytime after June,” said Veron snr.
“He would like it very much if he were to play for Panathinaikos. We have had many discussions in the past and he told me that he would be interested in playing in Greece, returning to Europe and playing in European competitions.
“I have fond memories of when I used to play for Panathinaikos. I have the feeling that we are going to be close once again.”
