Rossi 'not just wanted by Juve'

Barcelona appear to have given up on Giuseppe Rossi, but his agent notes “there are many clubs interested, not just Juventus.”

The Villarreal and Italy star is eager to join a top club after impressing in La Liga and at international level this term.

He had been on the verge of joining Barcelona, but that move collapsed when they turned their attention towards Udinese's Alexis Sanchez.

“I spoke to Giuseppe yesterday. He's relaxed on vacation and is not thinking about these things right now,” agent Federico Pastorello told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“We need to wait and see how the various transfer negotiations play out.

“Do Juventus like him? I think a player of Rossi's qualities is always going to be sought-after. There are many clubs interested, not just Juventus.

“The fact remains he has a five-year contract with Villarreal and is happy to have signed it. For the rest, we'll have to see.”
