Juventus director Fabio Paratici assures they “don’t need” any replacements for injured Merih Demiral, as Giorgio Chiellini will be back soon.
Turkey international Demiral had made a strong impact recently, pushing Matthijs de Ligt on to the bench for six games in a row, even scoring his first goal in the 2-1 win at Roma.
However, he suffered a serious knee injury during that game and has been ruled out for six-seven months following ACL and meniscus surgery.
“The idea of signing a defender is not in our minds, as we do not need any more centre-backs,” director of sport Paratici told Rai Sport.
“We have strong defenders and a complete squad at our disposal, especially as we hope to have Chiellini back very soon. We’re fine as we are.”
