but Trez probably leaves for free after next season if we don't sell him now, we are forced to sell him, but Cavenaghi (or any other mentioned before) doesn't sound bad at all...
The only thing between Trez signing a new contract to 2008 is that our management has not offered him a decent salary. He is on €2.5 million, and Barca is apparently offerning between 3 and 3.5.
Now... Di Vaio is on 6 million (this season 4.8 from next season on I believe).... Montero is on 5......... Del Piero's contract has been prolonged to 2008 with him going down to the "meager" 8.8 million a year.
If we offer Trezeguet a salary that corresponds to his class, efficiency and status- he is more than ready to stay. He has said the exact same thing throughout... for two years now: "I want to stay, Juventus know what I want. I hope we can work it out" His father; who is his advisor- has continually said the same and added- "We hope that Juventus will keep their promise."
Maybe Trez WILL be sold. There's certainly enough rumours, but if we go into a situation where Trez has NOT prolonged his contract, and we end up with another Davids case- then it's ENTIRELY our own fault. We can easily tie down Trez to a new contract- if only we offer him a sensible deal. And Del Piero earning almost four times what David does + Di Vaio (DI VAIO!!!!) earning more than double... that is rediculous, and an insult to a great, and very much coveted, striker.
Make it happen Moggi, and while you're at it- give Maresca the 2 million he wants, and he'll sign on until 2009!
