No Drogba for hard-up Juventus, says coach
MILAN (AFP) - Juventus coach Antonio Conte has rubbished claims the Serie A champions are on the verge of signing former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.
Juve extended their lead over title challengers Inter Milan to seven points on Sunday, thanks to a 3-0 rout of Atalanta.
But despite reports claiming the Bianconeri have been in talks with Drogba's representatives, Conte said Juventus - and indeed other major clubs in Italy - are in no financial position to sign top players.
Asked if Drogba would fit Juve's search for a top striker, Conte was unequivocal.
