Conte’s men hope to bring midfield ace home.
Juventus coach Antonio Conte is believed to be looking at the possibility of bringing Paris Saint Germain midfielder Thiago Motta back to Italy as a possible replacement for Andrea Pirlo, Football Italia reports.
Reports from outlets in both France and Italy have suggested that the Bianconeri could move for the 31-year-old in the January transfer window as he heads up a shortlist of players drawn up to prepare for the former AC Milan playmaker’s departure at the end of the season.
Pirlo’s current deal in Turin expires at the end of the season and speculation surrounding his future has been rife as recent links with Tottenham Hotspur refuse to go away.
And with that in mind Conte could look to the Brazilian-born Italian international as a solution to his problem, even if the player has sought to distance himself from the talk of a move away by insisting that he is solely focused on his job in the French capital.
“I’m good at PSG and I just focus on the job, the rumours do not interest me,” he told reporters.
Motta joined PSG in the summer of 2012 and played a big part in the side’s reclaiming of the Ligue 1 title as well as their extended run in the Champions League.
