Melo could leave Juve, says agent

Felipe Melo has yet to be told whether he has a future at Juventus, the midfielder's agent has revealed.

"In the coming days we will know a little more," Josè Rodriguez Baster told Sport.co.uk. "We have been talking to Juventus but there is no official position on his future.

"He has been playing really well in the last couple of games.

"During the last few weeks of the season we have been talking to the club and there are differing opinions on his level of performances."

Melo joined the Old Lady two years ago in a €24m switch from Serie A rivals Fiorentina. If he does move on then England could be a possible destination.

"Right now he is doing well and we have no official communication saying that he is for sale," the representative added.

"However, if Juventus decide they want to sell him the Premier League would be one of his favourite options available to him."

Arsenal and Liverpool have been associated with the 2010 World Cup player. Melo is now 27-years-old.
