Beppe Marotta laments club’s inability to compete in transfer market for star players.
Juventus Director-General Beppe Marotta has complained about the club’s inability to compete with the game’s biggest names in the transfer market according to TuttoSport.
The Serie A side were recently knocked out of the Champions League at the quarter final stages by German giants Bayern Munich.
Juventus were convincingly beaten by Bayern despite dominating Italian football over the last eighteen months.
The gulf in class between the two sides is set to become bigger this summer with the Bundesliga Champions set to back new manager Pep Guardiola with significant sums in the transfer market.
Both Juventus and Bayern have been linked with Liverpool’s Luis Suarez but while Bayern have the resources to table a £40 million bid for the Uruguayan striker, Juventus now they will likely have to pull out of a deal should the player’s price tag rise to such an astronomical amount.
Juventus have been linked with a number of high profile players in recent months as they look to re-establish themselves amongst the dominant forces in European football.
But it appears increasingly likely that the club will have to settle for signings such as that of Fernando Llorente who join the Old Lady on a free transfer this summer once his contract expires with Atletico Bilbao.
