Juventus sporting director Beppe Marotta has confirmed that the Serie A giants are not in negotiations with Manchester City over a deal to sign Carlos Tevez reports talkSPORT.

The want-away South American striker faces an uncertain future following allegations he refused to play for the Citizens in their recent UEFA Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

But it appears one club he will not be going to is Juve, after Marotta ruled out any potential move for the Argentine international.

"It's normal that Antonio Conte wants to strengthen the team to challenge with the best," he said. "But we have a squad that presently meets our needs.


 

"Conte gave us some names and a list of positions he would like to see improved and we will look into the market and see if from now until January we can find an interesting deal.

"It is clear that Tevez is a great player and we are a great club so the link is normal, but to go from that to say that we are in talks for him is misleading. At the moment we are not in negotiations with Manchester City."

Citizens boss Roberto Mancini insisted that following the incident in Germany that Tevez would never play for the club again, as long as he was in charge at the Etihad Stadium, and the Italian received widespread backing for his stance on the situation, after players, managers and fans alike condemned the player's action.
