Juventus latest on Isla and Zuniga

Juventus insist Mauricio Isla will stay, but doubt they will be able to sign Juan Camilo Zuniga from Napoli.

The Chilean was attracting the interest of Inter, while the Colombian international’s future at the San Paolo is in doubt as he has less than a year left on his contract.

“There was an instant in which Inter wanted Isla, but we responded negatively to that and he will therefore stay with us,” director general Beppe Marotta said at the Oscar dello Sport ceremony at Mazara del Vallo. “That is for certain.

“As for Zuniga, I don’t think he will arrive. We have a first class squad which now includes Simone Pepe again [after injury] who is an important player for us.

“I believe that our squad will remain as it is.”

Napoli are trying to get Zuniga to sign a new contract seeing as they run the risk of losing him on a Bosman next June.

“Napoli have the right to offer him an extension seeing as he is their player. We are interested in Zuniga, but there are no negotiations taking place,” Marotta underlined.
