Juve show transfer patience

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta insists the Old Lady are in no rush to sign new players.

The club have brought in Andrea Pirlo, Michele Pazienza, Reto Ziegler and Stephan Lichtsteiner already this summer.

However, the first three of those players arrived on free transfers, while the right-back cost €10m from Lazio.

"We have a strategy," the official noted. "With calm we will be able to gift our Coach the players that he needs.

"We also have to take into account that the best deals are done with the transfer window about to close."

Marotta is expected to sign a centre-back, a wide midfielder and a new striker. A new central midfielder may also arrive depending on sales.
