Chedjou turns down Juve move

Juventus need to start cutting down their squad, but also received a rejection from Lille centre-back Aurelien Chedjou.

According to French newspapers this morning, Chedjou has told Bianconeri emissaries he wants to stay on in Lille for another campaign.

His contract expires in 2015 and the Cameroon international defender was hugely influential in their Ligue 1 triumph.

It is not just a rejection for Juventus, but also Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Liverpool.

Meanwhile, new Coach Antonio Conte is eager to cut down the squad at his disposal, especially as they won't be taking part in European games this term.

The Gazzetta dello Sport claims Juve aim to raise €23m by selling off names like Amauri, Felipe Melo, Vincenzo Iaquinta and Momo Sissoko.
