Luis Suarez: Juventus have ruled out making an imminent move

The Uruguayan last week stunned Liverpool by revealing he would be willing to leave Anfield, triggering interest from around Europe.

However, Marotta insisted Juventus are not about to make a bid for either Suarez, Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez or Paris Saint-Germain's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

He told Italia 2: "Who would I like as a birthday gift between Sanchez and Suarez? I am happy with our players and I cherish them. At this time of the season, we don't think about the [transfer] market.

"Ibrahimovic? He is a champion, but Juventus has economic parameters, which must be respected, and his salary is higher than these."

Marotta also ruled out coach Antonio Conte leaving the club.

He added: "There is not clause in his contract, but I think he will remain for many years and may get a lot of satisfaction from Juventus."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
