Motta: Juventus or abroad

Marco Motta would welcome a move abroad if Juventus decide to show him the door before the start of next season.

The defender, signed outright from Udinese just a few weeks ago, could be sold by the Turin giants – even if he wants to prove his critics wrong.

"I would like to remain here," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "For me, right now, Juventus are my team and there is only Juventus.

"I'm really motivated to do well, like never before.

"The only thought I am having at the moment is to have a better season than the inconsistent one I had last term, a campaign which was also affected by my injuries.

"I just want to have a season without any problems."

Rumours suggest that Motta could be offered to Atletico Madrid as part of the deal that sees Sergio Aguero arrive in Turin.

"I'm ready to try an experience abroad as I think it would be nice to do so sooner or later," he continued.

Motta was signed by the Turin giants last summer as their new right-back, but the club have now spent €10m of Lazio's Stephan Lichtsteiner.
