Atalanta have suggested that Leonardo Spinazzola will not return to Juventus as their CEO “thanks Beppe Marotta for his words.”
Spinazzola has been missing in action for Atalanta since their friendly against on August 11, around the time that speculation of Juve cutting his loan short arose.
Marotta chose his words carefully when describing the Bianconeri’s chances of bringing back the wingback on Tuesday, and Luca Percassi treated them as confirmation that the player would stay in Bergamo.
“We thank Marotta for his words because, despite the complex dynamics of the transfer market, he understood and respected Atalanta’s technical requirements,” he told Tuttosport.
