They suggest that United wanted him last Summer and were still interested, but the Argentine is now edging closer to a new contract to extend his stay in Turin.
It seems the main hold up with the deal just now is a situation with his image rights and he may also be looking for some extra money each week, but it sounds like something will be agreed.
