Conte makes us all feel important, says Marrone
The young midfielder has nothing but praise for the Bianconeri trainer, and expressed his ambition to do even better than last term with the Turin giants

Juventus youngster Luca Marrone has hailed head coach Antonio Conte's role in the club's recent success, as he feels the former Italy international does a great job of keeping everybody motivated.

Marrone added that the 42-year-old has played a big part in his personal development, and he is determined to reward the trainer for the faith shown in him.

"The coach makes us all feel important. We feel we have all got a possibility of being in the starting line-up," Marrone stated to the club's official website. 

"I have been working with Conte for a few years and I know what he wants, so I will look to make my contribution. The belief shown by him and the club can only give me confidence, pride and desire to work with the utmost commitment."

The 22-year-old then went on to express his delight with Juve's activity in the transfer market, and is hopeful that the Old Lady can replicate last year's success in the new campaign.

"There have been important arrivals and the club continues to work to bolster the squad even further. We are the champions and we will face this season with a great desire to follow up last year's achievement."

Juventus are currently preparing to kick off their season in the Supercoppa Italiana against Napoli.

Juventus call Inter’s Pazzini
Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has today been in contact with Inter’s Giampaolo Pazzini, reports Sky Sport Italia.

Pazzini is on his way out of San Siro after being told that he is not in the plans of former youth team boss Andrea Stramaccioni.

The Italian international has been linked with a variety of clubs inside and outside of Italy, but a move to Turin may be on the horizon.

According to the report, Marotta called Pazzini earlier today to underline the fact that he could be targeted by the Old Lady before the window closes.

Marotta knows Pazzini well given that he signed him for Sampdoria from Fiorentina. He then tried to net him for Juve in January 2011, but he joined Inter instead.

Juve could need a new attacker given that Alessandro Matri is being linked with a switch to Milan, while there is also uncertainty over the future of Fabio Quagliarella.

Pazzini, 28 in August, scored just five League goals in 33 games for the Beneamata last season.


Fiorentina: Jovetic will stay
Fiorentina have again stated their intention to keep hold of Stevan Jovetic this summer, amid transfer speculation.

The Montenegrin attacker has been strongly linked with a move to Juventus during this transfer window and last week was the subject of public bartering between the Bianconeri and his current owners.

Following on from that, the Florence outfit’s communications manager has promised that the 22-year-old will be convinced by the club to stay at the Artemio Franchi for at least one more year.

“Jovetic will stay with us next season and the new team will be built around him to entertain the public,” declared Gianfranco Teotino.

“In the city there is great enthusiasm, as seen from the presentation of the new shirt and the positive number of season ticket sales. [New Coach Vincenzo] Montella has great enthusiasm and some innovative training methods.

“There is great confidence in our future and we want Stevan to be a part of our project and it is down to us to convince him to play at least one more year with us.

“Is he tempted to leave? There have always been temptations because he is a great champion and it is normal that he wants to play on the big stage.

“We want to bring Champions League football back to La Viola with him, but also for his career he would certainly do well to stay another year with us.”
Krasic cold to Turkey
Milos Krasic is reportedly less-than-enthusiastic about the prospect of leaving Juventus to play for Turkish side Fenerbahce.

The Serbian was reported this morning as an identified target of the Turkish giants, whilst the latest reports indicate that initial contact has already been made.

However, there are believed to be two stumbling blocks to any possible progression of the transfer for the winger who Juventus paid €15m in 2010.

Specifically, it is understood that Krasic is disinterested in moving to the Turkish League and that the gap between his contract demands and the terms offered by Fenerbahce are too distant.

Last week, Krasic’s agent complained that there were few clubs interested in his client’s services.
El Kaddouri would talk to Parma
Omar El Kaddouri’s agent has invited Parma back into negotiations for the youngster, as talks between Juventus and his owners Brescia stall.

The Belgian attacking midfielder of Moroccan descent has been pushing for a move from Brescia this summer, with Juve a confirmed interested party.

However, with talks having hit a wall between the Bianconeri and the Rondinelle, the player’s agent has turned back to Parma, the team that the player broke off negotiations with last month because of Juve’s original interest.

“We wanted to take the opportunity with Juventus because it is the type of opportunity that only occurs once and must be taken right away,” Daniel Striani explained to today.

“This does not mean that he refused Parma, indeed they are also an important team, but the entire situation is halted, because Brescia have refused the offer from Juventus and we await developments.

“We want to find a solution with the club, it does not mean that we are fighting htem.

“If we were to be permitted to then we would discuss things with Parma.”
Preziosi denies Juve-Destro talks
Genoa President Enrico Preziosi has denied that Juventus are holding up Mattia Destro’s move to Roma.

Destro is understood to have held talks with both the Giallorossi and the Bianconeri, over a possible transfer away from Siena and Genoa, the two sides that currently co-own him.

However, whilst reports this morning suggest that Destro is stalling on the transfer to Rome because of a more enticing offer from Turin, Preziosi has made clear the deal in place.

“There is an agreement made with our club - Roma asked for Destro when we had not even redeemed him from Siena and we reached an agreement with them,” the Grifone owner told Sky Sport 24.

“Juve has not asked us anything, whilst Inter fell to one side. Again, I have a commitment to give him to Roma, there is no possibility to make a million more from this deal.

“We have an agreement that is good for both us and Siena.”
Moreno Torricelli: "Top-player? Would take Dzeko or Van Persie"
Speaking to Radio League outside of the former Juventus Moreno Torricelli has spoken extensively on the market and Juventus next season: "I do not think that Fiorentina will start Jovetic already started Behrami was that the other element that made a difference in purple. If you depart the Montenegrin think there would be a riot in Florence, is one of the most promising players in Europe. at the same time, however, did not I think the ideal for Juve, Earl wants to make the team play in a different way having already similar players Jojo is not a striker, which serves to Juventus.

Juve are a step above the other. "
