JUVENTUS have bettered Barcelona's offer for Memphis Depay - leaving the Spanish giants fearing another last-gasp hijack after PSG beat them to Georginio Wijnaldum.
Liverpool lost midfielder Wijnaldum on a free transfer and were also linked with his Holland team-mate, Lyon winger Depay.
But it's Barca boss Ronaldo Koeman who again faces embarrassment.
PSG nipped in for Wijnaldum with a huge pay offer - and now Juve are said to have offered ex-Manchester United man Depay more money than Barcelona.
Mundo Deportivo claim Barca offered a longer contract - three years, with the option of another 12 months.
But Juve are thought to have countered that with a wage package for the 27-year-old worth around £2.5m more.
And the suggestion in Spain is that Depay's head has been turned by Juve matching their enthusiasm to sign him with an eye-watering salary.
It's also reckoned Barca will NOT respond with an improved pay offer of their own.
