Wanted Pazienza staying at Juve

Michele Pazienza has turned down a variety of offers this month in order to fight for his place at Juventus.

The midfielder has been paired with numerous clubs, specifically Udinese who have admitted their interest in him.

However, his agent has insisted that the summer signing from Napoli will not be leaving Turin after new links with Parma emerged.

“Michele wants to stay at Juventus,” Vincenzo D’Ippolito noted. “He’s had a lot of requests as there are numerous sides who want him.

“Despite that he has decided to remain in Bianconero. They are top of the table and he feels like an integral part of the squad despite the fact that he isn’t playing that much.”

Pazienza, 29, joined the Turin giants on a free transfer after his contract at the Stadio San Paolo expired in June.

He’s made eight Serie A appearances so far this season, but he’s only started in one of those matches.
