Giuseppe Marotta has made it clear that Juventus will not make a move for Milan striker Marco Borriello.
A number of reports earlier today suggested that Serie A titans Juventus were on the verge of signing strikerMarco Borriello from Milan, but the Turin side’s technical director Giuseppe Marotta has now made it clear that the Vecchia Signora won’t sign Borriello.
“Marco Borriello? No. Our transfer market finishes here,” was Marotta quoted as saying by Sky Sport 24.
Milan are desperate to cash in on Borriello before the transfer window slams shut in order to be able to lure Brazilian winger Robinho to the club. The Manchester City star has reportedly already arrived in Italy to undergo a medical, but Milan supposedly lack the funds to sign the Brazil international if Borriello doesn’t leave the club.
Marotta’s words don’t necessarily mean that the Italy international will stay at Milan though, as Borriello has revealed that last year’s Serie A runners-up Roma are sitting in pole position to sign the former Genoa star.
“Roma are the favourites to sign me. I am waiting for the okay from Unicredit,” said Borriello,
Meanwhile, the proposed swap deal between Kakhaber Kaladze and Fabio Grosso has fallen through. Juventus had supposedly set their sights on Milan’s Georgian international, but Kaladze will stay at Milan.
