Bologna has made it clear that they are not willing to let go of their defender, Riccardo Calafiori, despite Juventus’ keen interest in signing him. Juventus, considering Calafiori as one of the top defenders in Serie A, has been facing frustration in their pursuit of the player.

Although Calafiori himself is interested in joining Juventus, he is not putting pressure on Bologna to force a transfer. Bologna, after securing a spot in the Champions League, is determined to make an impact in the competition and wants to keep their key players, including Calafiori, to continue their European campaign.

Reports suggest that Juventus has been persistent in their attempts to sign Calafiori, but Bologna’s unrealistic fee demands have caused negotiations to stall. This has thwarted Juventus’ efforts to secure their target and reunite him with Thiago Motta.

It is understandable why Bologna is reluctant to sell Calafiori, as he was one of the standout players in his position in Serie A last season. However, Juventus believes that eventually, the players Bologna is protecting will leave, providing them with an opportunity to sign Calafiori.

In other news, EURO 2024 is in full swing with exciting games taking place. Albania made a dream start to their campaign by stunning Italy with the fastest-ever European Championship goal. Meanwhile, Gareth Southgate has named a four-man ‘leadership group’ for the England squad at Euro 2024, with young star Jude Bellingham included.

As the transfer saga between Bologna and Juventus continues, the football world eagerly awaits to see if Calafiori will eventually make the move to Juventus or if Bologna will stand firm in their decision to retain the talented defender. The upcoming Champions League campaign will be a crucial test for Bologna’s resolve and ambitions in European football.
