Italian international remains committed to club.Check in to Inter Milan vs Juventus
The agent of Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella has denied that the player ever wanted to leave the club during the summer transfer window, Sky Sports reports.
The 30-year-old had been strongly tipped to move away from Turin this summer following the new arrivals of Athletic Bilbao’s Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez from Manchester City.
Hoping to seize the opportunity, West Ham United and Norwich City made tentative approaches to land his signature, but ultimately failed to convince the classy goal getter to swap Serie A for the Premier League.
And the player’s agent, Beppe Bozzo, has insisted that the player had remained committed the Old Lady’s cause and never wanted to leave the club, despite speculation surrounding his future throughout the summer.
“Fabio didn’t want to leave Juventus,” Bozzo told Tuttomercatoweb.
“He simply asked for more space in the side because he knows he can be of use. And boss Antonio Conte has always believed in him.
“Quagliarella received a number of offers from Italy and abroad, but the club decided to keep him because he is part of the project and considered an important player.
“Then it is only normal that you have to accept the rotation policy when you are part of a great side.”
Qualgliarella joined Juventus from rivals Napoli back in 2010 and has gone on to 26 goals in 79 appearances during his three seasons there, forming part of the side that has dominated Serie A with two title wins in the last two seasons.
