Marotta: 'Juve sell two strikers'

Beppe Marotta confirmed Juventus “are in the phase of removing excess players,” including two strikers.

The Bianconeri are in America where they lost 3-1 to LA Galaxy in last night’s Guinness International Champions Cup game.

“I will not name names, but at this moment we have six strikers. We need to be left with four,” director general Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

“We are in the phase of removing excess players from the squad.”

With the arrival of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente, it was always likely that players such as Alessandro Matri and Fabio Quagliarella would be pushed down the pecking order.

Both players have been linked with Premier League moves to Everton, West Ham and Norwich.

However, Mirko Vucinic is by no means safe either, as he is of interest to Manchester United.

Marotta was also asked about the reports Reto Ziegler will move to rivals Torino. “Maybe.”
