Marotta 'getting there' for Rossi

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta admits “we're getting there” in negotiations for Giuseppe Rossi.

It's well known they had meetings with Villarreal for the striker this week and put their focus on him after Atletico Madrid rejected their €35m bid for Sergio Aguero.

“We are working without haste, but are focused on many objectives,” Marotta told tuttojuve at the Bardonecchia pre-season training ground.

“Rossi? We're getting there, it's true, but we are also tracking other players.”

The 24-year-old is available for €25m plus a player, who is expected to be Felipe Melo.
