Newly-crowned Serie A champions are said to have rejected a lucrative bid for defender Mattia Caldara.
The Italian media report that French heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain have lodged a bid in excess of €40 million offer for the 24-year-old defender who joined Bianconeri in January 2017 but ended up spending the last 18 months on loan at Atalanta.
The former Italy Under-21 international is expected to re-join Juventus this summer as Serie A champions think of him as a huge part of their future project.
The Italian press claim Juventus board will block any further advances for the defender who is expected to be given a pivotal role at the back, replacing the ageing Juventus duo – Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli.
Caldara made 23 Serie A appearances this season at Atalanta. He also scored three goals in the league.
