James Rodriguez is not going to be joining Juventus this transfer window, in accordance with chief executive Guiseppe Marotta.
Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta insists there is “almost zero chance” of luring James Rodriguez from True Madrid towards the Serie A.
The Italian champions happen to be linked using a move for James, who has identified restricted possibilities under Zinedine Zidane at Madrid.
An €80million transfer from Monaco in 2014, James was certainly one of Madrid’s ideal performers in his initially season, but an injury sent him down the pecking order last term.
Nevertheless, Marotta says Juve will not be attempting to land the Colombia international, who was the best scorer in the 2014 Globe Cup.
“There is virtually zero chance of signing James,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“In just about every case between True Madrid and Juventus there is a excellent relation of esteem and mutual affection.”
Speaking at the draw for the Champions League, Marotta added: “With [Real Madrid president] Florentino Perez we joked about a few names but now we didn’t talk about any footballers since they choose to preserve their players.”
