Juventus did not give up and try to strike up a deal to Robie Van Persie (29): it supports the Corriere dello Sport in its edition today. According to the Rome daily fact, there would be new contacts between the leaders Juventus and the player's entourage, with the latter would have reassured the first on the player's decision not to renew his contract with Arsenal (expires 2013) . It remains, however, as pointed out by the Courier, a very steep obstacle: Manchester City, just like last year as part of the deal Aguero, is ready to intervene and make sure the Dutch striker, availability of a strong economy that Juventus can not match at all.

Juve, meeting today's Cairo-Marotta for Pazienza

The Torino seems to be more determined than ever to complete the negotiations on the purchase of Michele Pazienza, 30 year old midfielder of Juventus. The player, on loan at Udinese last year, does not seem to fit in the plans of the white club, which, for this purpose should meet in the day today, in the person of Beppe Marotta, president of the club grenade, Urbano Cairo, so as to close the deal in the shortest possible time.


Juventus to sit down with Lazio over Krasic, Pazienza & Ziegler
The trio are no longer needed at the Serie A champions, and the Old Lady have planned a meeting with the Biancocelesti to discuss a potential transfer

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici is set to meet with his Lazio counterpart Igli Tare to discuss the future of Milos Krasic, Michele Pazienza and Reto Ziegler, has learned.

The Turin giants are keen to offload a number of players who are no longer needed at the club, and Krasic, Pazienza and Ziegler are the top candidates to leave this summer.

Lazio have shown an interest in all three players, and Tare will meet with Paratici in Milan over the next few days to look into the possibility of a potential deal.

Krasic has lost his starting berth under head coach Antonio Conte, and was already close to joining Lazio in the January transfer window. The deal eventually fell through, though, and the Stadio Olimpico side are now ready to give it another try for the 27-year-old.

Ziegler, 26, could have joined Lazio on a free transfer in the summer of 2011, but he opted to sign for the Old Lady instead.

However, his stay at Juve has been unsuccessful and he was farmed out on loan to Fenerbahce before playing a single game for Conte's side.

The 29-year-old Pazienza spent the past six months on loan at Udinese, and Lazio coach Vladimir Petkovic sees the former Napoli star as a useful addition to his midfield.

It is by no means a certainty that the trio will leave for Rome, however, as the Biancocelesti are reluctant to splash the cash this summer on new recruits.

Much will therefore depend on Juventus' willingness to let go of the three players on the cheap, as none seem to have a future with the Serie A champions.


Conte happy with Giovinco & Lucio
Juventus boss Antonio Conte is delighted with the club’s work on the transfer market so far. “I wanted Sebastian Giovinco and Lucio is a top player.”

Conte masterminded the Old Lady’s Scudetto victory last term and he’s now hoping he’ll have the tools necessary to challenge in the Champions League.

Juve have been active on the market by signing back Giovinco from Parma, picking up Lucio on a free after he left Inter, as well as netting the Udinese duo of Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah.

“Giovinco is someone who I strongly wanted, but so too did the club,” the former club captain said from the outfit’s Chatillon summer retreat.

“Giovinco has technique, he scores goals and creates them. He can take a free-kick and is also strong in one-on-one situations. He still needs to grow, but he’ll get that chance here.

“Lucio? We didn’t hesitate for a minute and the player was immediately enthusiastic about the project.

“I’m very happy with his signing. Look at his CV, that makes it clear that we have signed a top player in his role.

“Isla and Asamoah are strong players and good enough for the Juventus shirt. We’ll impatiently wait for Isla who is recovering from injury.

“Whoever can offer me the more guarantees will play, there won’t be first team players and substitutes. I’ll pick those in form.”

Juventus are expected to continue buying given that they are looking to acquire a big name striker as their top scorer in Serie A last term was Alessandro Matri, a player who bagged just 10.

“After Milan, we had the best attack in the League so we shouldn’t moan about it,” the former Bari and Siena boss continued.

“It’s clear that you can always improve. We’ll look to try out some new things in training to create more chances and then if we get some help from the transfer market then we’d happily accept that.

“We had two options last year – to sign one top player or try to construct a complete squad.

“But a top player must be that on the pitch, not on an economical level. Just look at Arturo Vidal, he cost little but performed as a top player.

“There is great harmony with the club about the transfer market. I’m happy with those who have arrived, but there is still work to be done. It will be right if director general Beppe Marotta talks about that.”

For the first time in 19 years, Juventus will start the campaign without Alessandro Del Piero.

“Del Piero will always be present with us,” Conte noted. “It is odd that he isn’t actually with us after so many years, as he, along with Gigi Buffon, were the historical elements of the squad.

“I thank him for what he did last season and in all his career at Juventus. I wish him all of the luck in the world.

“Who will get his No 10 shirt? The club and I will decide,” he smiled. “I certainly won’t wear it, Marotta neither, maybe sporting director Fabio Paratici…”

It has not been the easiest of summers for Conte given that he is under investigating as part of the betting match-fixing probe with regard to allegations made while he was Siena boss. He faced questioning last week.

“I went through some tough times,” he continued. “It isn’t a nice situation, but I have great faith in the justice system. I told my truth, that I maintain was absolutely credible.

“In 42 years, my life has been credible. The club, the President and the fans know what kind of person I am. I’m calm and I cleared everything up, point by point.”

Conte is now just hoping to concentrate on footballing matters ahead of the 2012-13 season. “We have to continue to grow for the future.

“I’m hearing too much enthusiasm around us, I’d prefer if it was less. We’re looking to confirm ourselves in Italy.

“We’ll face the Champions League in the best possible way, looking to go as far as possible. It will be the same for the Coppa Italia.

“But we must not forget from where we came from.”

Conte was also asked for a comment on Roma boss Zdenek Zeman, a tactician who has a penchant for making controversial statements about the Old Lady.

“We’ll welcome Zeman back to Serie A. All I will say is that the best answers are given on the pitch.”
Del Piero to participate in J-League charity match
The former Juventus man will join a team of players hailing from areas affected by last year's natural disasters against an all-star selection at Kashima Stadium

Alessandro Del Piero will participate in Saturday's J-League Special Match at Kashima Stadium.

The former Juventus man is expected to join the 'Team as One' side of players from the Tohoku of Japan affected by last year's natural disasters, which will face off against a fan-chosen selection of J-League stars.

"I'm finally coming back to Japan for the first time in a while, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity," Del Piero wrote on his official Japanese blog. "I'm looking forward to meeting all of the fans who have given me love and support throughout my career.

"I'm glad that I can appear in this match to help support those who suffered from the disasters and the towns and cities that are rebuilding."

The 37-year-old is especially attached to the Land of the Rising Sun, having played there for Juventus in the 1996 Toyota Cup (now Club World Cup) as well as the 2002 World Cup. Following the disasters, he raised around €250,000 through his charity.

Del Piero has reportedly attracted offers from clubs in Japan, Thailand and the United States since leaving Juventus in May.

Pelatih Juventus Antonio Conte mengaku senang dengan keberhasilan timnya dalam bursa transfer musim panas ini dengan merekrut Sebastian Giovinco dan Lucio.

Bianconeri kembali merekrut Giovinco dari Parma dan mendapatkan Lucio dengan status bebas transfer dari FC Internacionale. Sebelumnya, mereka juga merekrut dua pemain sekaligus dari Udinese, Mauricio Isla dan Kwadwo Asamoah.

Usai merebut trofi Serie A Italia musim lalu, Juve tampaknya memiliki ambisi besar untuk menjadi penantang serius dalam perebutan gelar Liga Champions pada musim mendatang.

"Giovinco merupakan pemain yang sangat saya inginkan, demikian pula keinginan klub," ujar Conte kepada Football Italia.

"Giovinco punya teknik bagus, mencetak banyak gol dan membuka ruang untuk rekan-rekannya. Ia bisa melakukan tendangan ebbas dan juga kuat dalam sutuasi satu lawan satu. Ia memang masih bisa berkembang, dan peluang itu akan didapatkan di sini."

"Lucio? Kami tidak ragu-ragu mendatangkan dia ke sini, dan ia juga antusias dengan proyek kami."

"Saya sangat senang dengan perekrutan ini. Lihatlah CV-nya. Jelas kalau kami telah mendatangkan pemain top di posisinya.
