Juventus director Beppe Marotta insists “we won’t resume talks with Napoli for Marek Hamsik in January.”
Both clubs confirmed there were negotiations during the summer and Tuttosport claimed there will be another proposal mid-season.
“No, I doubt we would resume talks with Napoli for Hamsik in January, because we’ve signed an important player like Hernanes,” Marotta told reporters.
It was a difficult time for Juve, who missed out on targets including Roma’s Miralem Pjanic, Julian Draxler and Mario Gotze.
“We always seek the best on the market. We were unable to get all of them, but still have a great squad that won everything except the Champions League last season.”
