Juventus director Fabio Paratici insists “there is a range of Coaches we are evaluating and no time limit” on a decision, while leaving the door open for Paul Pogba too.
The Bianconeri have been heavily linked with above all three tacticians, all of them currently in the Premier League: Maurizio Sarri (Chelsea), Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) and Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham Hotspur).
“There is a range of Coaches we are evaluating,” director of sport Paratici told reporters at the Football Leader 2019 event.
“We have clear ideas and are working on it. There’s no time limit on a decision, it’ll take a little while, then you’ll know the new Coach.”
Chelsea boss Sarri said today that all Italians feel the draw to come back home.
“All Italians say that, we know it’s a good life here with great food,” smiled Paratici.
The director was asked specifically if Sarri is coming to Juventus.
“I have many friends here, so I took some time off and read as little as possible over the last few days.”
Finally, Paratici was questioned on rumours of interest in Pogba from Manchester United and Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa.
“We will certainly have a competitive squad. As for the transfer market, we’ll wait for the new Coach and will make the necessary evaluations after he has been announced.”
