Felipe Melo says he’s snubbed the chance of a return to Juventus after his loan stint at Galatasaray came to an end.
The Brazilian’s future is unclear after the Turkish club, for the second year running, decided to not take up their option to sign him outright.
As a result, he will return to Turin but not to stay.
“I left Juventus and went to Galatasaray where I won three titles in two years,” he stated. “Going back [to Juve] is not really an option right now.
“I talked to my Coach and other people who have been open with me. They asked me if I wanted to come back.
“I’m truthful and said I didn’t want to.”
