Marotta: ‘Icardi to Juventus is fantasy football’ https://t.co/KVWmiozkTn— JuveFC.com - Juventus News (@JuveFCcom) June 13, 2018
“Juventus players are considered unsellable, up until the moment they ask to be sold," he told reporters, as quoted by Goal.
"In the case of Higuain, even if he’s at the World Cup, we’ve received no such request.
"All that falls into the realms of fantasy, fantasy football."
Marotta also talked about Emre Can, hoping that Juve can make the signing official as soon as they can.
"We’re optimistic on Emre Can," Marotta confirmed. We can say that the contact with his representatives has started and are going well. We hope we can reach a conclusion in 10 days."
The reigning Serie A champions have already confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Mattia Perin in the summer. Now, with the signing of Emre Can, they will hope to bolster their squad in order to capture the ever-elusive Champions League, next season.
