Juventus sporting director has some bad transfer news for fans

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has claimed that his side are unlikely to add to their squad during the January transfer window.

The Bianconeri were busy in the summer signing the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot, Danilo and Matthijs de Ligt.

Rivals Inter have also been dipping into their deep pockets, and will likely do the same this month, but Paratici has insisted that the club, and coach Maurizio Sarri, are happy with the squad.

“We believe that we have a very competitive squad and for a while you in the media told us we had too many players. Therefore, it seems unlikely we’d need to bring in any more in January,” he told Sky Italia.

“We are evaluating with Marko Pjaca, as he has been injured and needs playing time. We’re also evaluating if he could remain with us, if there aren’t options that satisfy all parties.”

Juventus host Udinese in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday before playing Parma in Serie A this weekend.
