Aquilani open to Anfield return

The 26-year-old is on a season-long loan with Juve, having failed

to impress in his first season at Anfield after joining from Roma.

Juventus do have the option to purchase Aquilani at the end of the

current campaign, but if they do not exercise it, he is happy to go

back to Anfield. He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “The future? I’m at

Juve, but I don’t know what will happen. “I’m on loan and if I’m

not retained I’d go back to Liverpool in the best league in the

world. We’ll see.” Aquilani has also been linked with a move back

to Roma, who are on the verge of being bought out by Thomas Di

Benedetto, a partner of the company which owns Liverpool. Asked if

he would go back to the capital club, he said: “It is a delicate

question. I would do, but I think it will be difficult. “As a fan

I’m curious to see what happens, especially if they begin to buy

players and to revolutionise the team.”
