Juventus are interested in re-signing Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro, his agent has revealed.
The Italy captain, whose contract at Real expires at the end of the season, was keen to end his career at hometown club Napoli until president Aurelio De Laurentiis said he would not sign the 35-year-old because he was too old.
“Juve’s offer is the biggest and most interesting,” agent Gaetano Fedele told Italian media, adding Cannavaro was also a target in England, Russia and Germany.
“There’s every chance this will be the decisive week.”
Real are unlikely to offer him a new deal while Juve have not made any comment about the speculation linking him with a return to the club he left in 2006 in the wake of the Serie A match-fixing scandal.
Media reports said talks had included the option of him becoming a Juve director once he retires.
The 2006 world player of the year wants to captain holders Italy in the 2010 World Cup having missed Euro 2008 through injury.
