Iaquinta set for Juventus talks

Vincenzo Iaquinta wants a Juventus future – but he admits that he needs to hold talks with the Italian champions first.

The 2006 World Cup winner didn’t play a single minute for the Old Lady in 2011-12 and was sent out on loan to Cesena in January.

“I’d like to stay, but we’ll have to see what happens,” the 32-year-old told

“It is hard to say what will happen, especially as I’m even reading that Alessandro Matri and Fabio Quagliarella could be sold.

“In my heart I want to start pre-season with Juventus and try to convince Coach Antonio Conte of my ability.

“I’m very tied to the shirt, the environment and the fans, but I will certainly need to speak with the directors and Conte.”

Iaquinta has had an injury plagued last 24 months and he only managed one goal in seven games for Cesena. He is contracted to the Turin giants until June 2013.

The 2006 World Cup winner joined Juve in 2007 after seven years with Udinese.
