The agent of Juventus target Rhodolfo has underlined that present club Sao Paulo are in charge of his future.
The Brazilian is being linked with a January move to Turin, but Rafael Felix has admitted that no deal has been agreed between the two clubs.
"We have had a few meetings with Juve and the player has expressed his desire to go and play in Italy," the representative told calciomercato.it.
"However, Sao Paulo are also in the middle of this and they have yet to decide what to do. An agreement between the two clubs is vital.
"We'll just have to continue working in an attempt to move on from where we got to over the summer."
The agent confirmed whispers that Genoa are also keen on the 25-year-old, but he insisted Juventus were in pole position.
"Only Juve have made a concrete move," he added. "Their August offer for the player was rejected and if Sao Paulo don't want to sell then a deal won't be done.
"We have to wait and work together in order for an understanding to be reached by the time the January window opens."
Rhodolfo is a centre-back.
