Juve News Today 30/08/13

Over the last few weeks Juve have been interested in Manchester United winger Nani but Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has said that the deal is off as the Portugese player has agreed a new deal at Manchester United.

Sassuolo are now favourites to get Juventus youngster Luca Marrone. The 23 year old has sparked a lot of interest from all over Europe but now the Serie B champions are looking close to signing him.

Matri has joined Milan where he began his career for €11 million. This deal had been talked about for a while but was finally completed yesterday. In my opinion this is the wrong decision for Matri because if he was looking for first team football and he couldn't get that behind Tevez, Llorente, Quagliarella and Giovinco then how is he meant to get a game instead of Balotelli, El Sharaawy, Robinho and Niang.

Real Madrid have made an enquiry into French starlet Paul Pogba however Guiseppe Marotta has rejected the approach and said that he is not for sale. This is on the back of Pogba's agent saying that if Bale is worth £85 million then Pogba is worth twice that amount.

The draw for the Champions League group stages were held yesterday. Juventus were drawn in group B alongside Real Madrid, Galatasary and FC Copenhagen but the biggest positive out was finding out that Miss Switzerland Melanie Winiger is a Juventus fan.
