Juve still after Vicente

It is believed that Rafa Benitez's team is attempting to cut costs, but will not be doing so by selling both of their left-sided stars.
The rumours of Gonzalez moving to Italy gathered pace once Vicente burst upon the scene at the beginning of last season and kept the Argentinian international out of the side.
Now it would appear that Juve could be ready to offer £12 million plus two players to lower the overall fee.
Uruguayan forward Marcelo Zalayeta and defender Alessandro Birindelli are being touted as those players that could see themselves shipped to Spain if the offer was accepted, although Valencia are not in desperate need of either.
According to Italian sources, a representative of the Che side rang the agent of Birindelli and enquired about his services, even though they bought Jean Felix Dorothee from Stade Rennes on Monday.
Vicente's buy-out clause is set at around £21.6 million and Valencia president Jaime Orti is unlikely to let such a young Spanish talent leave for such a low fee.
