Juve: Suarez investigation stopped

Prosecutors in charge of the investigation involving Luis Suarez and Juventus lawyers say it has been stopped for now due to too many leaks.

Luigi Chiappero and colleague Maria Turco travelled to Perugia today to defend their alleged roles in the Italian language exam that Suarez took prior to his proposed move to the club.

However, Sky reports the seven-hour meeting concluded with the prosecution opting to pause its probe for the time being.

While Juventus’ lawyers deal with the Luis Suarez fiasco, the striker has completed his switch to Atletico Madrid from Barcelona.

Morata the ideal marriage for Juventus

Alvaro Morata is the ideal striker for Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus for precisely the same reasons he struggled in London and Madrid, writes Susy Campanale.

There’s an Italian saying, great loves never go away, they just go take the long way round and meet up again. Alvaro Morata has always been utterly in love with Juventus. He found his confidence here, played his best football in the Bianconeri jersey, met and married his wife Alice. Even though he played for both clubs in the city of his birth, it’s Turin he considers to be home.
