READ­ING are in talks with Serie A cham­pi­ons Ju­ven­tus over a deal that would see the Ital­ian gi­ants blood some of their top tal­ents at the Made­jski.

The Royals al­ready have a part­ner­ship with Turk­ish gi­ants Galatasaray, but have yet to pinch any play­ers from the Is­tan­bul out­fit.

Rus­sian mil­lion­aire owner An­ton Zin­gare­vich (above) claims the lat­est talks with Juve would be an­other huge coup for the Cham­pi­onship club.

He said: “It’s good to get es­tab­lished with a club like that. “They are look­ing for part­ner clubs. We’re in dis­cus­sions but there’s noth­ing to con­firm yet.

“They have 100 play­ers on the books who they look to de­velop, so they are look­ing to get part­ner­ships with clubs who can help them do that.”
