The Bianconeri transfer guru was intercepted at a Football Leader event in Amalfi today and answered questions about all the market rumours surrounding the club.

“This is a group that’s difficult to improve but we always want to be more competitive,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Dani Alves? We’re talking about an important player, but he isn’t our property. We’ll see what we can do.

“Mascherano? These are media situations, but we don’t want to sell anyone from our defence unless Caceres leaves on a free transfer.

“At the moment, though, we haven’t done anything, I can’t confirm or deny it. And the same goes for [Andre] Gomes and [Miralem] Pjanic.

“Berardi is a great talent, there’s a verbal agreement with Sassuolo and Juventus have the moral right of first refusal and we’re going to complete this deal.

“Morata? He’s becoming a champion, we’ll do everything possible to keep him in Turin.

“Real Madrid’s buy-back clause is like the Sword of Damocles, but we’ll meet with them after the Champions League final.

“Pelle? The only unknown in the attacking department is Morata, only in that case will we evaluate other investments.”
