Beppe Marotta expects Emre Can’s situation to be resolved in 10 days, and confirms Juventus will meet Alex Sandro next week to extend his contract.
The Bianconeri are working on their plans for next season, but Alex Sandro has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
“Well… let’s just say we’re in contact with almost all players to review their contractual positions a bit,” Marotta told assembled reporters this afternoon.
“We want to go and do something which will reflect what their experience has been with us over these past few years.
“We’ll meet with the agents and the representatives of Alex Sandro, we’ll see each other next week and I think it’s desirable to extend the contract.
“It’s part of those fairly ordinary meetings that take place at the end of each season.”
Emre Can is expected to join on on a free transfer from Liverpool after the Champions League final, and Marotta also offered an update on that.
“It’s clear that Emre Can is in a position where his contract expires on June 30, I can’t hide that.
“He’s an attractive player for many clubs, and I’m optimistic because Juventus is a great club and Emre Can is a great player.
“So when he decides to leave his club, which today is Liverpool, we’ll have a great chance. I think this operation can be closed – in a positive or negative way – within 10 days.”
Another midfielder who has been linked is Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic…
“He’s a great talent, but I want to clarify that we also consider market value, we haven’t ventured down this path,” Marotta insisted.
“Among other things I’d say that the squad we have today is competitive in view of our objectives, which are the maximum objectives of a top European club.
“We have some important deals in the pipeline, but they can’t be reflected by a name.
“Paul Pogba? That’s fantasy football.”
