Juventus have ruled out the sale of their midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah after the Ghana international was recently linked with a move away from the Serie A side.

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has made it clear that the Italian giants are in no way going to sell their best players.

This comes after several clubs were linked with making a move for a number of Bianconeri stars including their Ghanaian player.

Midfielder Asamoah has been suggested as one potential departure, but the Old Lady general director has ended all speculation of any sale happening this summer.

“We are not a selling club,” Marotta was quoted as saying by Voetbal Primeur.

The likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid have seen their names associated with Asamoah, who made his move from Udinese to Juventus in the summer.

But Marotta will not be moved.

“Last season they already inquired about our best players, but I repeat: we are not a selling club,” he affirmed.

The Ghana international’s contract at the Italian Club is shared with Udinese in a co-ownership deal.

He has made 24 appearances for the Bianconeri this season so far, scoring two goals.
