Marotta: ‘We need a winger’

Posted on 19/08/2010


Juventus director general Beppe Marotta admits he intends to sign a winger before the end of the transfer window on August 31. 

The Bianconeri have been linked with Hamburg’s Eljero Elia and CSKA Moscow’s Milos Krasic for most of the summer. 

Speaking to Tutto Mercato Web, Marotta said: “Everything will become clear on all fronts in two or three days. 

“The only real economic investment the club needs to make involves a left winger. 

“Other eventual arrivals will only come through swaps and adjustments,” he concluded. 

Juventus appear to have lost momentum in the transfer market after doing a lot of the early running. 

The arrivals of Jorge Martinez, Marco Motta and even Leonardo Bonucci have been greeted with a degree of scepticism both in the media and among Juventus fans.
