Maurizio Sarri

Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has hinted at incoming transfers at the Turin club days after they confirmed the signing of Dutch sensation Matthijs de Ligt.

The former Napoli boss wants to refrain from concerning himself about the transfer activities of the club and prefers to leave it to those who are required to.

However, he did admit that the squad is not complete yet and there could be some activity from now till the end of the transfer window.

“I don’t want to occupy myself too much on the market because I think that’s the right thing to do and because I keep much less of an eye on it than those who are in charge,” said Sarri after Juventus’ defeat to Tottenham in the International Champions Cup.

“Maybe there are leagues and players I don’t know about. Therefore, it’s better to leave it to those who are in charge.

“We have lots of players in certain positions and less in others, but we’re talking about a situation where I have seven players in Turin carrying injuries and five who have yet to return from international commitments.

“I think the club, between now and the end of the transfer window, will do something in terms of incomings, but we’ll also have to do something in terms of outgoings.

“We have so many players right now that we’ll have to keep two or three out of our Champions League squad. We certainly have to do something.”

Neymar has been strongly linked to the Italian champions but it remains to be seen if they can gather the funds for what could be a record-breaking transfer.
