Teixeira 'dreams' of Juventus

Shakhtar Donetsk forward Alex Teixeira has admitted that he 'dreams' of playing for Juventus.

The Brazilian striker has starred for the Ukrainian club since his arrival in 2010, but has conceded that he would love to play for the Bianconeri one day, after tasting life in Turin during their meetings in the Champions League this season.

“I want to respect my four-year contract with Shakhtar,” he told Lancenet. “Then, once I've done that, I have a dream of playing for Juventus or in the Spanish League.

“I will try my best to make that happen over the next few years.

“I think my best performance in the Champions League this season was against Juventus in Turin. And even though they beat us at home, we are still going into the next round with a lot of confidence."
