Watford boss reveals why he pulled the plug on stunning deal for Roma star

Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores has revealed why the club pulled out of a whopping deal for Roma star Juan Iturbe, report the Watford Observer.

The 22-year old attacking midfielder had been set to arrive at Vicarage Road on a loan deal until the end of the season, flying to London in order to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms.

However, they deal collapsed at the final hour after the Paraguayan revealed his demands about first-team football and a regular starting berth.

The Hornets head coach was not prepared to afford him any guarantees after his side have performed so well this term.

‘Sometimes it is the decision of a player not to come and sometimes the club decide he is not the right player’, stated the Spaniard.

‘The case of Iturbe is very clear. He is coming to England because he is not playing enough game in Italy.’

‘But I couldn’t tell him he would play here. So it is good for us and for him to look for a different situation.’

Since the collapse of the deal, fellow promoted side Bournemouth have been rumoured to be closing in on the midfielder for a club record £16.2m.
