Marotta talks Juventus transfers

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has underlined that Champions League progress could subsequently aid the club in the transfer market.

The Old Lady were unable to sign a big name striker in the summer that they so desperately wanted, but a good European run could help Marotta bring in new faces.

“The Champions League is also appealing for economic reasons,” the former Sampdoria official stated. “That is why it is important to progress.

“Signing a striker in January, putting our financial resources to one side, will also depend a lot of who is available at the time…”

The Turin giants have been paired with a possible move for Didier Drogba, the Ivorian international who is now playing his football in China with Shanghai Shenhua.

“I will exclude nothing,” Marotta said when asked about the former Chelsea striker.

Juventus need a point from their final group game at Shakhtar Donetsk to qualify for the last 16 of the European Cup.
