Marotta: Juve not interested in Drogba

By Football News



Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta says his side have no intention of signing Shanghai Shenhua star Didier Drogba.

The Ivory Coast international, 34, is reportedly unhappy in China, and has recently been linked with a move to Turin as Juve are keen to add some more firepower to their squad.

However, the former Chelsea striker is not one of the candidates to strengthen the Serie A leaders' attack in the January transfer window.

"We have never considered making a move for Drogba. That's just rumour and speculation," Marotta told Mediaset Premium.

Juventus are also be said to be monitoring the situations of Roma's Pablo Osvaldo and Athletic Bilbao's Fernando Llorente.
