‘Conte will be Juve’s focus’

A FIFA agent has suggested Juventus’ key concern this summer won’t be Paul Pogba or Claudio Marchisio, but Antonio Conte.

The Coach is set for talks over a possible new contract with the Bianconeri at the end of the season, whilst speculation suggests Pogba and Marchisio may be the subject of bids this summer.

“If a stratospheric offer comes in for Pogba then I believe that Juventus will not reject it, it would absurd for them not to behave as others would,” FIFA agent Roberto de Bisceglie has considered to this week.

“€80m or a similar figure is something no Italian club could refuse. Even if an incredible deal comes in for Marchisio then it would be difficult not to accept it.

“But, I think that Marchisio will stay at Juventus and that this will not be the main aspect of the forthcoming market for the club - Conte could leave Juventus.

“There are rumours of course, it may or may not be true that the Juventus Coach just wants a strong market in order to build a team that can do important things in the Champions League.

“I don’t know for sure that if he will leave Turin that he would go to Monaco or Manchester City.

“Of course he would not be easy to replace, to find someone of his experience and value would not be easy. Klopp would be the ideal choice.”
