Amauri plays for his future at Juve

The way Amauri plays over the next six games will decide his future at Juventus, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 30-year-old striker is expected to start against Parma today after nearly two months out through injury.

Reports suggest Juventus have lost patience with Amauri given his poor goal-to-game ratio over the last two and a half years.

He is a high earner at the club and Beppe Marotta would ideally like to move him on.

However, the Brazilian has expressed his desire to stay and in order to do so he must start scoring.

Up until now Amauri has played 96 games for Juve, banging in 24 goals: nothing exceptional.

But he started this season relatively well and found the net three times in the Europa League, persuading Gigi Del Neri to give the former Palermo hitman another chance.
