Udinese’s interest in Michele Pazienza has been confirmed, but he will not be leaving Juventus in January.
“The player is certainly liked by Udinese,” agent Vincenzo D’Ippolito admitted to Tutto Juve in an interview.
“There are no doubts about that so the voices that we are hearing are true, even if the situation is another…
“I can say with total tranquillity that Pazienza will remain at Juventus and he will not be moving in January.
“Coach Antonio Conte wants to keep him and he’s renewed his faith in his ability.
“Michele really wanted to join Juventus in the summer and he’s convinced that he made the right choice.”
Pazienza, a 29-year-old central midfielder, signed for the Old Lady on a free transfer once his Napoli contract expired.
Fiorentina have also been paired with the man who has made eight Serie A appearances this term – even if seven of those came as a substitute.
