Luca Toni is now being linked with a move to Dubai after Parma insisted that they are not in any transfer talks with Juventus.
Officials from both clubs held a meeting on Thursday evening after which Juve director general Beppe Marotta stated that they had discussed the 34-year-old.
However, Parma chief Tommaso Ghirardi has told Tutto Juve that nothing is in the pipeline for the striker or anyone else.
“At the moment there are no deals being discussed with Juventus,” Ghirardi commented. “We spoke as club officials often do, but we didn’t construct any transfer operations.”
Juve, after offloading Amauri to Fiorentina, are also trying to get the 2006 World Cup winner off their wage bill.
Toni hasn’t played at all this season and his contract in Turin expires in June 2012.
Now stories this morning are suggesting that Toni is wanted by Al Nasr, the UAE Pro-League outfit bossed by former Italian goalkeeper Walter Zenga.
