The agent of Bayern Munich defender Robert Kovac, Jurgen Milewski, has confirmed that Juventus are interested in recruiting the Croatian international defender.

“There is an offer from Juventus on the table,” Milewski told Bild am Sonntag.

Bayern have offered Kovac a two-year extension at the Olympic Stadium but are unwilling to match his salary demands as they look to reduce their overheads.

Kovac cost Bayern €8.5m from Bayer Leverkusen in 2001.
