Marotta: ‘Isco, Oscar will never arrive’

Real Madrid’s Isco and Oscar of Chelsea will ‘never be signed’ by Juventus according to Bianconeri Director General Giuseppe Marotta. 

The 58-year-old also underlined that he hopes Paul Pogba will stay with the Old Lady, but pointed to the fact that spending power may be decisive.

"A trequartista? We are looking for a midfielder numerically, not with any specific qualities, but in the context of a very eclectic midfield which includes Pogba, Marchisio, Khedira and Pereyra,” the 58-year-old said to Quotidiano Sportivo.

“Dybala could play as a trequartista. Isco and Oscar are two players who aren’t extraordinary, but they would add to Juventus. Unfortunately they aren’t ours and we will never sign them.

“Pogba’s future? In modern football the decision of the player is paramount, like with Tevez.            

“It’s obvious that we would like to keep him until he stops playing, but we can’t afford to do anything crazy in terms of salaries and some clubs can guarantee twice what we can.”
