Juventus rule out move for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez

Published 3 Comments

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez appears to not be heading to Italy in the summer after Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta ruled out making a move for the striker.

Interest in Suarez intensified last week after he revealed he would be willing to leave Anfield in the summer in search of Champions League football.

The forward has been in sumptuous form for Brendan Rodgers' side this season, and scored a stunning volley at the weekend on the international stage in Uruguay's 1-1 draw against Paraguay.

Suarez has scored 32 goals for club and country this campaign and is expected to lead the line when La Celeste visit Chile tonight.

However, the 26-year-old Reds star is not on the Italian club's radar, and Marotta also ruled out making an imminent move for Paris Saint-Germain's Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez.

He told Italia 2: "Who would I like as a birthday gift between Sanchez and Suarez? I am happy with our players and I cherish them. At this time of the season, we don't think about the (transfer) market.

"Ibrahimovic? He is a champion, but Juventus has economic parameters, which must be respected, and his salary is higher than these."

Marotta also spoke about Antonio Conte's future at the club, and ruled out the possibility of the manager leaving at the end of the current campaign.

He added: "There is not a clause in his contract, but I think he will remain for many years and may get a lot of satisfaction from Juventus."
