Amauri and Melo back to Brazil?

Juventus could send Amauri and Felipe Melo back to Brazil over the summer with interest from Flamengo and Corinthians.

The two players are on the market and not particularly a part of Coach Antonio Conte's plans.

Amauri admits he would be very interested in the move back to his homeland for Flamengo, where he'd play alongside Ronaldinho.

“If it was up to me, I'd go there straight away,” he told newspaper Lance.

“I'd love to come back to Brazil. I'd be honoured to play at the Maracana with the Flamengo jersey, the same side that Romario represented. We'll see, but nothing is finalised yet.”

As for midfielder Melo, he is reportedly wanted by Corinthians, San Paolo and Santos.

His contract with Juventus runs until 2013, but it's possible he could initially make the move on loan.
