Argentinean star thinking Greece

Argentina’s former Manchester United and Chelsea midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron could be on his way to Greek club Panathinaikos, according to his father. In an interview with Greek sports newspaper Sportime, Juan Ramon Veron, who played for the club in the 1970s, said his son, who was recently recalled to the Argentina squad, may be following in his footsteps. «We do not have an official offer in our hands but I am in talks with Panathinaikos’s management and we are making great progress,» he said. «Panathinaikos offered to work with us a few days ago.» Panathinaikos has declined to comment. Veron, 32, is back home in Argentina playing for Estudiantes but his father said the midfielder’s contract expires in June. (Reuters)
