Juventus have been warned off prime target Luis Suarez. “He’s not for sale,” assured managing director Ian Ayre.
The Bianconeri are consistently linked with the 26-year-old hitman, who would fit the bill as the ‘top player’ in attack fans have been waiting for since last year.
Juve’s chances of snapping up the Uruguayan would increase considerably if Liverpool fail to qualify for the Champions League again.
“To play at the highest level in the Premier League and European soccer, you need players like Luis and Steven Gerrard on your team,” Ayre told Sports Illustrated.
“So the last thing in our mind is selling Luis Suarez. He's not for sale. It's not something we're interested in.”
