Marotta: "Jovetic? 30 million too much
Van Persie? We need to be realistic"
Vidal: "Everyone's leaving Italy? Better for us, although it won't be easy to repeat." Reassurances on his health: "The groin problem is a distant memory. Isla? Competition is good"

At a Lega meeting Beppe Marotta spoke on the Bianconeri's transfer season and on top players. The Juventus director general seemed to imply that Van Persie is out of reach, and that the price on Jovetic is too high.

Jovetic and van persie — On a basis of 30 million euros Juventus do not intend to open negotiations for Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic: "It's an unmanageable figure. We're not even going to discuss it right now," explained the Bianconeri's director general Beppe Marotta. But do Juventus have 30 million for Jovetic? "Good question. Everyone is free to set the price they want. It's a legitimate right. But we haven't opened negotiations with Fiorentina." Robin Van Persie remains a transfer market dream for Juventus, but it's not necessarily a path that can be followed to completion: "It's necessary to always have dreams and ambitions, but at the same time you also have to contend with the reality of everyday facts. We're relaxed and we know what we have to do. This is the most important thing."

vidal — Arturo Vidal arrived in Turin just a year ago but he's already become the idol of all Juventus fans. In Chatillon he's the player most sought after by Juventus supporters, and after training when he moved close to the stands to sign autographs he nearly triggered a riot. Along with Pirlo, he was the big surprise last season and also earned the praise of Antonio Conte, who stated when speaking of the Chilean: "Vidal has proven to be a top player on the pitch despite the fact that he didn't cost 40 million euros. It's not the price tag that shows a player's value. I hope that other players of his calibre come to Juve." The former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder is enjoying the moment: "I'm really pleased by the warmth of the people. Perhaps the fans love me because when I put the Juve shirt on I put my heart and soul into it. They make me feel important."

injuries — "The groin problems are now a distant memory. I'm fine now and the fact that I've been doing everything with the group for several days now is a good sign. We're working hard."

repeating — "What we have to do this season is to run hard just like we did last season. We know that repeating won't be easy, but that's our goal."

transfer market — "I'm glad when I read that there are many teams that would like to take me from Juve. But I'm happy here and I'm only thinking of doing well in this shirt. I like the atmosphere and the fans. Here I feel at home."

competition — "Isla? The more competition the better; it stimulates you. It will be harder for everyone to find space, not just for Isla or myself. But the important thing is the good of the team and we'll all give everything to make things difficult. It will be a tough season and we need to prepare ourselves as best as possible."

— "Every year I set new goals to achieve that are always more difficult. This year my goal is to win all three competitions. I believe it's also the goal of my team-mates. Penalties? At Bayer I took them and I'd have no problem doing it here with Juve as well. Should Conte decide to make me the penalty taker I'd have no problem with it."

exodus — "Why are so many great players are leaving Italy? Thiago Silva and Ibrahimovic went to a team that has a lot of money to spend but I couldn't tell you why the others have left. The Italian league is very competitive and difficult. But better for us, since we have a good team and no one has left. At Juve we've reinforced the team even more, continuing the process that began last year."

in pole position 
— "We're the favourites because we won the Scudetto, but it won't be easy to repeat in such a difficult league. However, we proved that we're very strong and, at this moment, the others have been weakened."

Van Persie, Jovetic and Cavani 
— "They're all great players, it doesn't matter whether or not I like them. What matters is what the coach thinks. I've never played with any of those three, but I've played with Matri, Vucinic and with Sanchez for Chile."


Werder Bremen open talks with Juventus starlet Gouano
The young stopper is being tipped to follow Eljero Elia out of Turin to the Weserstadion, having been identified as the man to replace Naldo if, as expected, he joins Wolfsburg
Werder Bremen general manager Klaus Allofs has revealed that the club are keen to sign Juventus defender Prince-Desir Gouano and have entered discussions with the France Under-19 international.
Don't Miss

The 18-year-old Bianconeri centre-back was photographed in Bremen on Sunday and a deal seems set to be agreed between the two sides once Naldo's exit to Wolfsburg is finalised, despite problems with his medical on Wednesday.

Allofs has already conducted business with Juventus this summer, bringing in Dutch winger Eljero Elia for €5.5 million, and has now confirmed Bremen's interest in Gouano.

"We have met and talked," Allofs confirmed to Bild.

"As part of the Eljero transfer, we asked Juve about the possibility of signing Gouano. Now we have spoken with the player."

It is unclear, as yet, whether any move for Gouano, who joined Juve from Le Havre last May, would be on a permanent or loan basis.


Juve still trying for RVP
Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta admits they know what they need to do to land Robin van Persie.

Sky Sports revealed earlier this month that Juve are leading the chase for the Arsenal captain, who is also wanted by Manchester City and Manchester United.
The Gunners have received offers for the Dutchman, who has confirmed that he has no desire to extend his current deal which has one year left to run.

Van Persie is understood to be considering his options with a move to Turin firmly in his thinking.

And Marotta admits that they are trying to seal a move which they consider a "fans' dream".

"Van Persie is a fans' dream," Marotta said.

"Everyone has dreams but then you have to confront this with the reality.

"We know what we have to do, and that is the important thing."


Should their bid for Van Persie fail, then Juve are also keen on Fiorentina ace Stevan Jovetic.

But they seem insistent that they will not pay the €30milion fee that the Florence outfit are demanding for the Montenegro international.

"Fiorentina want €30million for Jovetic. Everyone is free to determine the price they want for a player - but we have not begun any talks with Fiorentina," he added.


Juventus locked in negotiations with Udinese over Armero
The champions are not done on the transfer market just yet as they have now set their sights on landing a third Zebrette player this summer in the form of the Colombian left-back
Pablo Armero could be on his way out of Udinese this summer as Juventus have approached the Friuliani over a potential transfer, 

The Old Lady are keen to reinforce the left side of their squad ahead of the 2012-13 campaign, and they believe the 25-year-old fits the bill, having already brought in former team-mate Mauricio Isla for the other flank.

Juventus have already opened talks with Udinese and have proposed a one-year loan deal, with the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.

Nevertheless, the Udine side have no intention of letting Armero leave on loan, and have told Juve that it would take an offer in the region of €12 million to lure the Colombia international away from his current club.

The Serie A champions are reluctant to invest heavily on Armero, though, and are hopeful that Udinese will accept a co-ownership deal instead.

However, Juventus are keen to offload Reto Ziegler first in order to generate funds, before returning with another offer for Armero.

The versatile Colombia international would be the third player to leave Udinese for the Old Lady this summer following the previous departures of Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah.


De Ceglie: Juventus for life
Paolo De Ceglie has outlined his desire to stay with Italian giants Juventus for the rest of his footballing life.

The 25-year-old is a product of the club’s youth system and has spent his career to date with the Old Lady, apart from a loan spell at Siena in 2007-08.

“Staying with Juventus for life is certainly what I am hoping for,” the left-back stated from the outfit’s pre-season retreat.

“I have always supported this club and I want to play for them from now until the end. I’m proud to be able to wear the shirt of my boyhood team.”

Juventus won the title last season and can lift more silverware on August 11 when they take on Napoli in the Italian Super Cup Final.

“We’ve got a host of friendlies ahead of the Super Cup game and we’ll look to face them as if they were Finals in order to be fully prepared for Napoli.”

Juve’s summer fixtures include games against Hertha Berlin, Benfica and Malaga.

De Ceglie also responded to a question regarding why his ‘relationship’ with Demi Moore broke down.

“It just wasn’t working out,” joked the Ashton Kutcher look-a-like. “She lived too far away so we decided to call it a day…”
Motta all set for Bologna
Juventus full-back Marco Motta will spend the new campaign at Bologna after an agreement was reached between the two clubs.

Motta, an Italian international right-back, will join the Stadio Dall’Ara outfit on a loan deal given that he is surplus to requirements in Turin. Bologna will also have the option to buy outright next summer.

The 26-year-old will undergo his medical at some stage on Thursday and his move will then be made official.

Motta joined Juve in the summer of 2010 from Udinese. He didn’t feature at all under Antonio Conte last season and joined Catania on loan in January.
Juve’s Leali looking for loan
The agent of Nicola Leali has admitted that his client will not remain in Turin following his move to Juventus.

The goalkeeper, 19, joined the Bianconeri in a €3.8m transfer from Brescia at the start of this month, but he’s set for an immediate loan switch.

Given that the Old Lady have Gigi Buffon and Marco Storari on their books, Leali will be offered no playing time with La Signora in 2012-13.

“Leali’s priority right now is to go and gain experience elsewhere so he can continue to grow,” representative Graziano Battistini noted.

“Crotone? That could be a plausible solution. They are a club who have allowed youngsters to work well over recent seasons.”
Antonio Conte Masih Inginkan Pemain Baru
Pelatih Juventus Antonio Conte mengungkapkan masih ada sejumlah transfer yang akan dibereskan.

Setelah mendatangkan Mauricio Isla, Kwadwo Asamoah, Lucio, Sebastian Giovinco, Paul Pogba dan Martin Caceres, Antonio Conte masih berencana untuk mendatangkan pemain baru lagi musim panas ini.

"Saya senang dengan pemain yang sudah bergabung bersama kami," kata Conte, Kamis (19/7).

"Ada harmoni yang sempurna di skuat, tapi masih ada beberapa hal yang harus dituntaskan," paparnya.

Conte sepertinya ingin mendatangkan pemain baru khusus untuk lini depan skuatnya. Sejumlah pemain sudah masuk dalam bidikan Juventus.

Dari beberapa nama yang ada, Robin Van Persie dan Gonzalo Higuain menjadi pemain yang paling sering disebut-sebut akan ditarik ke Juventus Arena dalam waktu dekat.
Marco Motta Segera Berlabuh Di Bologna
Bologna menyepakati transfer peminjaman Marco Motta dari Juventus selama semusim penuh ditambah opsi permanen.

Bermain sebagai personel pinjaman di Catania pada setengah akhir 2011/12, full-back milik Juventus, Marco Motta, nyaris pasti bakal menghabiskan musim kompetisi depan dengan status serupa di Bologna.

I Rossoblu, menurut kabar dari laman Football Italia, sudah menjalin kesepakatan dengan I Bianconeri terkait peminjaman pemain 26 tahun itu selama semusim penuh plus opsi pembelian permanen di akhir stagione 2012/13.
Bekas punggawa AS Roma itu dilaporkan akan melakoni uji kesehatan di Stadio Renato Dall’Ara pada hari ini. Bila tak ada kendala berarti, Motta kemudian bakal langsung diperkenalkan sebagai pemain baru Bologna.

Berseragam Juventus sejak musim panas 2010 -- mulanya dipinjam dari Udinese kemudian dibeli setahun kemudian, kans Motta untuk turun membela Si Nyonya Tua hilang seiring kedatangan Antonio Conte di awal 2011/12.

Ia sama sekali tak pernah dimainkan oleh sang allenatore hingga akhirnya dipinjamkan ke Catania pada mercato Januari kemarin.
AC Milan eye Matri as possible Ibrahimovic replacement
The Rossoneri's budget may mean that the Juventus striker could be targeted to replace the free-scoring Swede after his move to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday

Juventus striker Alessandro Matri is emerging at the top of AC Milan's summer transfer wishlist, as they look to fill the attacking void left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

The Rossoneri's CEO stated on Wednesday that the San Siro side will replace the Swedish star - whose 28 goals saw him top the scoring charts in Italy last term - with a "champion".

Matri would fit the bill in a literal sense, having collected a Serie A winner's medal last term, but spent chunks of the past campaign on the bench.

However, the publication understands that Galliani regards high-profile names in Europe, such as Manchester City's Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez, as too expensive, and is instead looking at the more affordable Matri.

Although the 27-year-old has not always been a starter for the Bianconeri, he still scored 10 goals in 31 appearances in 2011-12 after securing an €18 million transfer from Cagliari last summer following a successful loan spell.

One other option Massimiliano Allegri's side are believed to be considering is Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao, whose agent was reportedly in Milan on Wednesday.

The striker has earned nine caps for Brazil and will be in the shop window this summer, as he is set to play for his country at the Olympics.
De Ceglie: Juventus Untuk Selamanya!
Paolo De Ceglie mengungkapkan keinginannya untuk menghabiskan seluruh karirnya di Juventus. Pemain berusia 25 tahun ini memang didikan asli Bianconeri, dan hanya keluar dari Juve ketika dipinjamkan ke Siena pada musim 2007-2008.

"Bermain untuk Juventus sepanjang karir adalah sesuatu yang saya impikan," ucap bek kiri ini kepada para wartawan yang meliput sesi latihan pramusim Juventus.

"Saya selalu mendukung klub ini dan saya ingin bermain untuk Juve mulai saat ini sampai akhir karir saya. Saya bangga bisa mengenakan seragam tim idola saya saat masih kecil," tambahnya.

Juventus yang sepanjang musim lalu tampil cemerlang berpeluang mendapatkan trofi lagi jika bisa mengalahkan Napoli di ajang Piala Super Italia. De Ceglie sangat yakin akan mampu mengalahkan Napoli kali ini.

"kami akan menjalani serangkaian pertandingan persahabatan sebelum Piala Super. Kami akan menjalani setiap pertandingan persahabatan itu layaknya final agar bisa benar-benar siap saat menghadapi Napoli," pungkasnya.

Lalu ada wartawan yang usil bertanya tentang hubungannya dengan Demi Moore yang kandas. De Ceglie memang memiliki wajah yang menurut sebagian orang mirip dengan Ashton Kutcher, mantan kekasih Demi Moore.

"Hubungan kami tak berjalan baik. Demi Moore tinggal terlalu jauh dari saya, jadi kami sepakat untuk putus saja..." timpalnya.
