Marotta explains reasons for Juve failings
Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta has gone public with the reason behind the Serie A club's failure to sign Stevan Jovetic, Edinson Cavani and Marco Verratti during the last transfer window.
"We spoke to Fiorentina President Mario Cognigni and sporting director Daniele Prade about Jovetic,” said Marotta. “Nevertheless, the player is no longer of any interest to us.
“As for Cavani, we didn’t chase him in the summer because we already knew that Napoli wouldn’t have sold him to us.
“Unfortunately, we couldn’t spend €12m on Verratti. It’s the same old story of financial restraints.”
