Marotta drops Juve transfer hint

Juventus director Beppe Marotta confessed “one signing will arrive from Ligue 1, the Liga or Premier League.”

The general manager spoke to Sky Sport Italia ahead of the Scudetto celebrations in tonight’s game with Atalanta.

He was asked whether the Bianconeri had made a bid for Atalanta midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura, who is also wanted by Fiorentina.

“Bonaventura is a complete player who has grown a great deal in recent years, but we do not have any agreement with him,” replied Marotta.

“We are still looking for players who are tactically versatile and can take different roles. I can say one signing will arrive from Ligue 1, the Liga or the Premier League.”

Marotta refused to name names, but was asked about recent meetings with Real Madrid President Florentino Perez.

“He asked me for many more players than I asked him.”

This nonetheless confirms Juventus have requested some Real Madrid players and vice versa.
